Newly Qualified Teachers
In the Diocese of Hallam, we offer an Annual Induction Day for Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) that explores the distinctive nature of Catholic education and its role within the Mission of the Church, including:
- An introduction to the Come and See programme
- The place of prayer and worship in the Catholic School.
- Leading and planning collective worship
- Maintaining a healthy work/life balance
- An opportunity to share experiences with other Newly Qualified Teachers
The Induction programme provides an introduction to Catholic Education.
A buffet lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day.
We recognise that the role of a teacher is very important in the success of a school. Not one child will pass through a school untouched by the experience that you, as a teacher, help to create.
You are now beginning the exciting and challenging task of supporting and teaching young children.
We want you to succeed, strive for high standards, enjoy your work and be truly happy.
A summary of the Diocesan Induction Day 2015
In early November, 36 newly qualified teachers from across the Diocese came together at the Pastoral centre for their Induction day, an event which is held annually. The day provides an opportunity for primary and secondary colleagues to explore together their special role as educators in our catholic schools. Much laughter was heard throughout the day as experiences were shared and new friendships made.
The afternoon workshops focused on leading prayer and worship in school and everyone went away with armfuls of resources and new ideas provided by Lucy Saxton ( Our Lady of Lourdes, Doncaster) and Kathryn Meehan (Holy Trinity, Barnsley).
It was wonderful to see so many enthusiastic, committed and talented new teachers all together. We hope that they have long and happy careers in our schools and will consider moving on to leadership roles in the future.
