Lowestoft's Active Learning Trust hub has held a celebratory event to mark the success of its newly qualified teachers (NQT's).

Held on July 6, the afternoon recognised the completion of the NQT's first year of teaching across the hub's Lowestoft area schools- including Reydon Primary, Grove Primary, Red Oak Primary, Westwood Primary and Pakefield Primary.

Throughout the year the thirteen NQTs attended a series of workshops to aid their professional development, covering such topics as literacy, maths and Special Educational Needs.

Commenting on the sessions Hannah Hindes of Westwood Primary School said: 'This is quality training that I have taken back to school and implemented with the children in my class.'

Delivered through a mix of theory and practical sessions, the Active Learning Trust's NQT induction professional development programme is designed to ensure NQT's feel supported and have the opportunity for rapid development.
