Please note that only NQTs who are fully qualified can register for the NIPT Workshop Programme. Students who have to sit repeat exams are not eligible to attend the Workshop Programme until all examinations are passed and they have applied for registration with The Teaching Council.
It is really important that all applicants with Teaching Council registration pending submit their Teaching Council number to their local Education Centre immediately on receipt of same from The Teaching Council. In summary, all NQTs attending the NIPT Workshop Programme must have a Teaching Council Registration Number.
Important Information for NQTs Regarding their Registration Requirements for the Teaching Council
- An NIPT workshop is a requirement for NQTs in schools who are completing Probation (Primary) or PQE (Post Primary).
- Workshops are not a requirement for NQTs engaging in the Droichead process.
- However, NQTs participating in Droichead can count this workshop as an Additional Professional Learning Activity, with the agreement of their Professional Support Team in school.
- If you are teaching in a school with 24 or more classroom teachers (Primary), or more than 700 pupils (Post Primary) or in a SEN Setting, your only route of Induction is via the Droichead process.
