Newly Qualified Teachers

You are here: Home

Whilst seeking a permanent post, Affinity Education can assist you in seeking suitable short and long term positions to gain experience within your chosen profession. Once you have completed your teaching degree and teaching placements, we are able to place you as an un-qualified teacher.

Once you are awarded your QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and are registered with the EWC, you can be placed in schools as a Newly Qualified Teacher. Newly Qualified Teachers are appreciated at school, bringing their up to date knowledge of the national curriculum and enthusiasm for the profession. 


Induction is a statutory requirement for all newly qualified teachers (NQTs) in Wales who have gained qualified Teacher status (QTS). The statutory induction period provides all newly qualified teachers with a transition from initial teacher education and training to effective professional practice.


Newly Qualified Teachers, in addition to completing induction whilst working as a long term Supply Teacher (typically during a period of three full school terms), can also complete induction whilst working as a short-term Supply Teacher, once 380 school sessions (one session is equivalent to a morning or afternoon of teaching) have been completed. There is no time limit to completing the 380 sessions but NQT’s must provide evidence of meeting all the relevant professional standards.


As a Newly Qualified Teacher it your professional responsibility to ensure that you have a secure understanding and undertake the statutory induction requirements.
