Important Information for NQTs regarding Cluster Meetings and NIPT Induction Workshops
Please note the following:
NQTs undertaking the Droichead process are required to complete one Cluster Meeting per term.
NQTs must apply for Droichead via www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email from the Teaching Council before registering for Cluster Meeting 1.
Cluster Meeting 1 will be available via Zoom as per the Cluster Meetings Calendar. This should be read in tandem with Cluster Meetings: Important Information and Attendance Protocols which includes a link to register.
A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs: 5 Primary workshops; 5 Post-Primary workshops and 3 Cross-Sectoral workshops.
Multi-Grade Teaching in the Primary School (NIPTWS14) for Primary NQTs has been added to the suite and is now available.
An updated Post-Primary SSE & Planning workshop (NIPTWS02) will be available the week of September 27th, 2021.
Induction workshops are open to all NQTs to support their professional learning. While they are not a requirement of the Droichead process, many NQTs use them as an Additional Professional Learning Activity.
