NIPT is pleased to facilitate a number of Post-Primary NQT Voice Events during the week of May 10th. These events are an opportunity for NQTs to share their experiences of the Droichead process with us. Invitations to register interest in attending these events will be sent directly to schools.
As advised by the Teaching Council and agreed by the Department of Education, in the context of Covid-19, Council recognises the variety of teaching and learning environments in which Droichead can operate and that elements of Droichead can take place on-site or online.
Cluster Meeting 2 (CM 2) will be facilitated via Zoom from April 20th - 29th and dates/times will be released on the 12th and 19th. Protocols apply and those NQTs wishing to attend are required to familiarise themselves with them prior to registering.
Protocols as well as the link to register for CM 2 can be accessed here.
Cluster Meeting 3 (CM 3) will be facilitated via Zoom from May 5th - 27th inclusive and dates/times will be released on a weekly basis. Protocols apply and those NQTs wishing to attend are required to familiarise themselves with them prior to registering.
Protocols as well as the link to register for CM 3 can be accessed here
A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs via the NIPT online learning platform here - 4 Primary workshops; 5 Post-Primary workshops and 3 Cross-Sectoral workshops.
Evidence Based Behavioural Support (NIPTWS09) for Post-Primary NQTs has been added to the suite and is now available.
Induction workshops are open to all NQTs to support their professional learning. While they are not a requirement of the Droichead process, many NQTs use them as an Additional Professional Learning Activity.
PST Training will continue to be delivered online for Term 3. NIPT RDOs are facilitating this professional development via the Zoom platform. Access to training will be subject to the application of necessary criteria to enable the Droichead process to happen for the maximum number of NQTs nationally.
