NQT registration deadlines - important notice

11 Nov 2019

Registration deadlines

Here are the latest NQT registration deadlines:

  • NQTs starting in January 2020 - 5 February 2020
  • NQTs starting in April 2020 - 5 May 2020

For NQTs starting in the middle of term/ year, please register them as soon as you can.

Please register NQTs on time (by the deadline) as failure to do so may delay the start of the induction period.

The statutory guidance stipulates that:

  • ‘Once an NQT has been appointed, the headteacher/principal must notify the appropriate body in advance of the NQT taking up post. Failure to do so may delay the start of the induction period’ (Para 2.24).
  • The NQT induction cannot be backdated.

Delayed registrations

If a registration is delayed, the Appropriate Body (AB) will either approve registration date as the start date; (Statutory Guidance states, ‘The start date for induction will be determined by the appropriate body, and must be agreed in advance with the headteacher/principal and NQT (Para 2.12).

Or you may be asked to provide confirmation and evidence that the NQT has been in full receipt of their induction entitlements (since the start date claimed by the school), before we make an attempt to inform the TRA of the new registration.

Please register your NQTs well before the deadlines to ensure we meet the deadlines and most importantly, do not delay the start of NQTs’ induction.

If you have a query, please email Mirela Temo at mtemo@ealing.gov.uk.
