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.
Cluster Meetings 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. Both of these are available on the scrolling news section of www.teacherinduction.ie
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 Meetings 1
Registration for Droichead Cluster Meeting 1 is now open!
This will be facilitated via Zoom from October 11th and dates/times will be released on a weekly basis. Protocols apply and NQTs wishing to attend are required to familiarise themselves with them prior to registering. Protocols and the link to register can be accessed here.
A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs: 5 Primary workshops; 6 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.
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.
