In this episode, Oxfordshire Teacher Training’s Matthew Coatsworth meets Kat Lygate, NQT Induction Coordinator at The Cherwell School. They discuss the importance of high quality training for the mentors themselves, what a typical early career teacher might receive during their NQT year, and in particular what happens after the first year of teaching. Kat shares findings from her master’s study into coaching during the second year of a teacher’s career, and they anticipate the introduction of the Early Career Framework in September 2021. Finally, Matthew reminds regular listeners of a new NASBTT initiative that he explored with Emma Hollis back in episode 6, their Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone.
