Information for EEA NQTs

Teachers must have qualified teacher status (QTS) to undergo statutory NQT induction in England and to take up an NQT post in a maintained primary, secondary or special school in England.  This also includes NQT posts in non-maintained special schools.

The UK Government Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA) are the awarding body for qualified teacher status (QTS) - not Manchester Local Authority.

If a teacher does not have QTS, they are not considered to be an NQT and therefore they are not eligible for statutory NQT induction or to apply to the Manchester NQT Talent Pool.

Teachers who have trained outside of England and Wales must obtain the necessary clearance from the UK Government Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA) before they apply for NQT positions in maintained schools and non-maintained special schools in England - the TRA will determine whether or not you are required to undergo a statutory induction period.
