The Induction Workshop Programme is a flexible learning programme, funded by the Department of Education and Skills, and designed to meet the particular professional learning needs of newly qualified teachers (NQTs). The programme, coordinated by the National Induction Programme for Teachers, builds on the learning that took place during initial teacher education. It can be tailored by an NQT to his or her particular circumstances. Subject to an overall minimum of 20 hours of professional learning, NQTs may combine school-based professional learning activities with off-site workshops. Engagement in the Induction Workshop Programme is a requirement for all NQTs not engaging in the Droichead process, who wish to be fully registered with the Teaching Council.

It is essential that every NQT gives Blackrock Education Centre this NQT Induction Workshop Programme Registration Form (2018-2019) before attending his/her first workshop, regardless if you are attending one or 10 workshops.  A welcome pack with all the information you require will be sent to the e-mail address you fill in on this form.
