We are pleased to offer an NQT programme designed with your needs in mind.
Forest Learning Alliance (FLA) and Bracknell Forest Local Authority, along with the support from your school and school-based mentor, aim to provide high quality learning experiences, training, help, guidance and support to ensure your first year in teaching is a successful one.
“It is not how good you are, it is about how good you want to be!”
Training, visits to schools and support from your mentor will enhance your subject knowledge alongside opportunities to develop the skills and strategies needed to excel in teaching. Most sessions will be led by your peers who, like you, are teaching in the classroom. Other sessions will be led by highly regarded national consultants or experienced advisors. They will share their expertise and provide you with many ideas to try out back at school. The sessions will also provide networking opportunities, building a professional learning community across our schools.

And the pupils in the least effective classrooms will take two years to learn the same amount of material. The difference between the two is the quality of the teacher”. Dylan William (Assessment for Learning – Why, What and How? Camden 2009)

Courses are delivered by the Forest Learning Alliance and school-based personnel, specialist leaders of education (SLEs), specialist consultants along with external trainers and aim to provide practical guidance on developing classroom practice and teaching techniques. These events also provide an excellent opportunity for NQTs to meet together on a regular basis during their induction year.
