All teachers who hold qualified teacher status (QTS) must, by law, complete statutory NQT induction satisfactorily to continue teaching without restrictions in England.
As an appropriate body for induction in Manchester schools and colleges, we have the main quality assurance role within the induction process, and must provide support and monitoring to more than 400 NQTs each year.
We are also responsible for making the final decision on the outcome of induction.
NQT induction support
If you are an NQT employed within the boundary of Manchester City Council, visit our induction support site www.teach-manchester.org for your induction guidance, which outlines what to expect, what is expected of you and who to contact if things seem to be going wrong.
All NQTs must be registered for induction by the relevant person at the school or college. This should be the headteacher, principal, induction tutor or coordinator. Registration is a legal requirement. If an NQT is not registered for induction, legally they are not on induction and induction cannot be backdated.
If you are an NQT and you’re not sure if you have been registered for induction, talk to your school or college.
