What we can offer you as a recently qualified teacher

As a recently qualified teacher, it is critical that you make the transition from training to experienced professional in a supportive environment. Hampshire is a thriving place to live and teach, with over 500 schools ranging from small and rural to larger city ones. Hampshire offers teachers the opportunity to work and develop professional practice as part of a high performing, diverse and supportive family of schools with the stewardship of one of the strongest and best regarded local authorities in the country.

Your journey certainly doesn’t end at the NQT year… as you move out of your NQT year to become a Recently Qualified Teacher (RQT), we’ve developed our 'Flying Colours' programme specifically for teachers in the early stage of their career who wish to deepen their understanding of high quality practice, carry out class-based action research and work in partnership with other reflective practitioners. This offer sits alongside those available locally in Teaching School Alliances and is designed to be complementary to other training programmes available to Recently Qualified Teachers.

See what recently qualified teachers say about their experience of working in Hampshire

As a Recently Qualified Teacher and a Maths teacher at Ringwood School I’ve benefited from a whole range of CPD opportunities which have supported me in the classroom. My professional mentor has been excellent and I’m delighted that this support has continued through my RQT years. Teaching really is an amazing job, the students continue to surprise me on a daily basis. Hampshire is a vibrant and fun place to live and work. I can’t recommend it highly enough as a County to come and teach in.
