Why teach in Westminster?

Teachers and support staff are staying within Westminster because of the excellent ongoing support and training we offer. We recognise that the development of the whole school workforce is essential and has a significant influence upon the success of our pupils and schools.

In addition to the training and support you will receive from your school, we provide a central high-quality induction programme for Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) and support your progress throughout your first year, during early professional development and beyond. We provide training, monitoring and guidance to ensure that your induction is effective, fair and empowering. Our schools identify an induction mentor who will have responsibility for overseeing your school based professional and pastoral support and we have an NQT consultant to quality assure your induction. Our continuing professional development programme responds to the needs of Westminster. It is extensive to enable all staff to further develop their teaching skills and to support schools in retaining high quality teachers and support staff.
