NQT special: CPD beyond NQT

David Weston discusses why NQTs should focus on their CPD during year 2 at the chalkface and looks at what your priorities might be.

Congratulations, you have almost completed your NQT year and finished the induction process in becoming a teacher.

With the reduced teaching load that you have had during your initial training and NQT year, you will have had a chance to reflect on your practice and learn a huge number of techniques and teaching approaches.

Many of these have now become ingrained and instinctive and you have probably found yourself thinking less about how to deal with the small details of what you do and concentrating more on the larger challenges. When you start teaching again next year, these refined instincts and your increased confidence will make everything much easier.
