Initial Teacher Training, NQTs and RQTS

Mulberry Schools Trust values its staff and seeks to build career progression for all those committed employees. We know that the quality of teaching offered in schools matches the quality of teachers and support staff therefore investment in a rich programme of professional development and training in the early years of teaching is crucial.

City Excellence in Teaching (CET) – Initial Teacher Training:

Mulberry School for Girls leads City Excellence in Teaching, a large cluster of primary and secondary schools in East London who offer a range of school-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes.

We recruit trainee teachers who share our commitment to social justice and our core belief that every child deserves the best quality education and outcomes regardless of background. Collaboration amongst schools ensures that trainees across CET’s programmes benefit from challenging, varied and engaging opportunities.

Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)

Mulberry Schools Trust is committed to delivering and facilitating high quality professional development for NQTs to ensure the best quality of teaching, learning and outcomes for all students in our schools.

NQTs at Mulberry Schools Trust benefit from a high quality bespoke induction programme led by expert leading practitioners. They meet on a weekly basis to further develop their pedagogy and practice and engage in classroom-based research projects. NQTs from Trust schools have opportunities to network and share good practice throughout the year. As a result, our NQTs progress quickly and are often in a position to take on greater responsibilities or new experiences early in their career.

As part of our Teaching School commitment, we also co-facilitate the secondary NQT professional learning programme for Tower Hamlets Education Partnership which provides CPD for all Secondary NQTs based in Tower Hamlets who sign up for the programme. Click here for more information.

Mulberry Schools Trust is also an Appropriate Body for the accreditation of Newly Qualified Teachers employed by schools outside of the Trust. We can also run NQT programmes for other schools or offer bespoke consultancy support for NQTs.
