The KTSA offers a comprehensive package, with no hidden extras, of quality support for NQTs and their school leads.

We are registered and approved to act as an Appropriate Body and we currently offer a primary programme for schools.


Primary offer

The KTSA acts as the registered Appropriate Body. NQTs are registered with us and we are responsible for reporting the NQTs progress to NCTL, confirming the successful completion of the NQT period.

The NQT and their School Leads benefit from our support services and training programme.

Our programme offers NQTs:
• training & support from experienced school leaders and classroom practitioners (Full day induction and 6 afternoon sessions)
• opportunity to attend PREVENT and Tier 2 safeguarding training free of charge
• professional discussion and personalised action plans
• monitoring visits with paired observations & feedback
• access to wider KTSA training & half termly Teach Meets
• access to email and telephone advice

Our programme offers School Leads:
• Induction for school based mentors
• access to email and telephone advice for School Leaders & NQT tutors
• support with the completion of the required documentation

We believe that friendships formed in the NQT period often prove to be a valuable support as teachers progress throughout their careers. It is important to get that work life balance right early on, so our programme reflects this with an active programme of social events.


£500 per NQT
£450 per NQT for KTSA partner schools
