Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Induction

East Sussex County Council provides Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) with a wealth of ongoing support. From September 2018 the LA will cease to act as Appropriate Body for NQTs in East Sussex. A new service will be established through a partnership of schools led by St Richard’s Catholic College with the capacity to provide services to all NQTs in East Sussex Schools.
