Important Information for NQTs regarding their registration requirements for the Teaching Council:
● If an NQT is teaching in a school with 16 or more classroom teachers (Primary), or 400 or more students (Post-Primary) or in an SEN Setting, the only route of Induction is via the Droichead process.
● Schools outside of the above categories are also offering Droichead. NQTs are asked to check with their schools as only one process can be offered at school level (i.e. Droichead or PQE [PP] / Probation [P].
● Engagement in the NIPT Induction Workshop Programme is a requirement for NQTs who are completing Probation (Primary) or PQE (Post-Primary).
● Attendance at workshops is not a requirement for NQTs engaging in the Droichead process. ●
NQTs participating in Droichead may count a workshop as an Additional Professional Learning Activity, to address a professional learning need identified by them, in consultation with their PST.
