Recently Qualified Teacher (RQT) Programme

Aimed at teachers within their first 5 years of teaching. TKAT TSA offers ongoing support to teachers moving beyond their NQT year, which presents new challenges such as less non-contact time, greater demands and subject leadership.

The RQT Programme aims to bring teachers together early on in their career, to enable them to develop their practice as well as provide a support network across the Trust.


Session 1: Time Management and Wellbeing

This session supports delegates to improve their work-life balance, reduce stress and use their time more efficiently

Session 2: Effective Communication

We reflect on the importance of good communication, the effect of non-intentional feedback and communicating effectively with a range of stakeholders.

Session 3: Teacher Resilience

This session explores signs of stress in ourselves and others, factors that decrease our resilience and strategies to improve it.

Session 4: Metacognition

In this session, delegates develop a greater understanding of metacognition and self-regulation in the classroom and learn ways to develop self-regulated learners.

Session 5: Innovative Teaching and Learning

We use the latest research to explore current evidence-based teaching strategies.

Session 6:  Subject Leadership

This session focuses on the role of a Subject Leader and gives strategies to raise and maintain standards within a subject.
