National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT) Induction and Droichead Workshops Term 1 2020-21
Induction Workshop Programme
As you are aware, a number of Induction workshops became available online during Term 3 2019-20. That online suite continues to be available to NQTs who require them throughout the Term ahead (2020-21) via the NIPT online learning platform. Unfortunately, face-to-face workshops will not run in Term 1 2020-21 as the Induction workshops will be entirely online for Term 1.
Two new online workshops will be added to the suite mid-way through this Term:
- Teacher Professionalism and Well-Being, NIPTWS01 (Cross-Sectoral)
- Múineadh na Gaeilge, NIPTWS12 (Primary)
Droichead, Cluster Meeting 1
As in previous years, NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on the Teaching Council website and receive a confirmation email from the Teaching Council before registering for Cluster Meeting 1. Cluster Meeting 1 will be available online only during Term 1 2020. It is anticipated that this provision will begin during early October via the NIPT online learning platform. NIPT will monitor the completion of Cluster Meeting 1 during this time. The NIPT website will be updated when this becomes available and the Teaching Council will publish the date on which applications for the Droichead process will open.
