Update re NQT workshops  

Unfortunately, face-to-face workshops will not run in Term 1 2020/21 and Induction Workshops will be entirely online for this term.

A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs via the NIPT online learning platform, https://onlinelearning.teacherinduction.ie/

Two new online workshops will be added to the suite mid-way through this term:

  •         Teacher Professionalism and Well-Being NIPTWS01 (Cross-Sectoral)
  •         Múineadh na Gaeilge NIPTWS12 (Primary)



Update re Droichead Cluster Meetings –

As in previous years, NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email from the Teaching Council before registering for CM 1.

CM 1 will only be available via our online learning platform https://onlinelearning.teacherinduction.ie during Term 1. 

Post-Primary CM 1 will be available for all Post-Primary NQTs engaging in Droichead from Monday, October 12th.

Primary CM 1 will be available for all Primary NQTs engaging in Droichead from Wednesday, October 14th.

Release dates are staggered to facilitate the large volume of NQTs engaging in CM 1.
