We are really finding the NASBTT Learn courses beneficial and will be utilising them more next year, mapping courses against our curriculum areas.

The Early Career Teacher Development Programme

In this programme, each teacher completes a simple online self-evaluation which analyses their professional development needs. Based on their responses, we provide an individually tailored report suggesting a programme of courses from the NASBTT Learn library. There is also a compiled report for the provider which gives a wider view of perceived areas of need across a cohort, and therefore the forms of extra support that may be required.

For more information about this programme, contact Jacquie Cox at
