Important Information for NQTs regarding Cluster Meetings and NIPT Induction Workshops
NQTs undertaking the Droichead process are required to complete one Cluster Meeting per term.
Cluster Meeting 1 will be available online only during Term 2 2021.
A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs: 3 Primary workshops; 3 Post-Primary workshops and 3 Cross-Sectoral workshops.
Individualised Education Planning for Pupils with SEN (NIPTWS15) for Primary NQTs andTransition from Primary to Post-Primary (NIPTWS12) for Post-Primary NQTs will be added to the suite and made available in February 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 find it beneficial to use them as an Additional Professional Learning Activity.
