On April 16th 2013 when The Teaching Council, in consultation with the National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT), taking account of feedback received from NQTs, has changed the requirements with regard to the number of workshops NQTs must attend in order to satisfy the induction condition of their registration.
All teachers registered with the Teaching Council since July 2012 subject to the Induction Workshop Programme condition will now satisfy that condition when they complete 10 workshops.
When teachers have completed ten workshops, the Education Centre Network will send verification of this to the Teaching Council. The Council will update the teacher's record on the Register and remove the condition. There is, therefore, no need for teachers to notify the Council when they have completed ten workshops.
The full suite of workshops will continue to be available and the Teaching Council, NIPT and ATECI recommend that NQTs attend all workshops, though attendance at 10 workshops is deemed sufficient for registration purposes.
If you have completed 10 workshops and will not be attending the remaining workshops it is essential that you inform your local Education Centre immediately.
May we take this opportunity to thank you for your attendance, participation and co-operation.
