  • An NIPT Workshop is a requirement for NQTs in schools who are completing Probation (Primary or PQE (Post Primary).
  • Workshops are not a requirement for NQTs engaging in the Droichead process.
  • However, NQTs participating in Droichead can count this workshop as an Additional Professional Learning Activity, with the agreement of their Professional Support Team in school.
  • If you are teaching in a school with 24 or more classroom teachers (Primary) , or more than 700 pupils (Post-primary) or in a SEN Setting, your only route of Induction is via the Droichead process. Click HERE for growth timelines.
