Octavo NQT Services Now Available to Purchase

June 20th, 2018

We are pleased to announce that our NQT Services for the academic year 2019-20 are now available for schools and academies to purchase.

Octavo Partnership is delighted to offer two Croydon newly qualified teacher (NQT) and induction manager training programmes for 2019-20.  These two programmes are based in locations in the North and South of the borough in order to provide optimum access to NQTs throughout the borough and beyond.


The NQT CPD sessions will be delivered by practicing teachers from the teaching partnerships below and Octavo Partnership. The focus is on ensuring NQTs have a detailed understanding of the theory and practice of teaching and how to apply it to their own teaching environment.


NQTs can select either one of the following programmes:

  1. Valley Teaching School Alliance
  2.  Croydon Catholic Umbrella Trust

Appropriate Body

Octavo Partnership will continue to act as an Appropriate Body on behalf of Croydon LA for NQT Induction, providing a service that guarantees your teachers are supported from the very beginning of their induction year, through to final assessment and certification from the Teacher Regulation Agency (TRA).  We work with many schools across London boroughs which means that we can provide a consistent benchmarking standard for NQT induction training across school sites.

Unique to the service is the support available when NQTs experience difficulties.  Octavo’s NQT team has extensive experience so that, whatever situation may arise, you know that you will be supported from start to finish to ensure the best outcome.
