It is important to embrace colleagues in the early stages of their career to provide additional development and supportive opportunities to maximise and secure the potential of colleagues. The continuous development of practitioners is vital to keep individuals involved directly in improving and engaging them in their own reflective practice.

“I’ve been in the teaching world for 3 years, that’s enough time to form habits and get into daily routines in the classroom. This RQT course has made me shake up my teaching practice! I teach 16-19 year olds, but the RQT course has opened my network to reception to secondary school teachers. What has been fascinating about this huge variation in ages is that, many of the new strategies/ideas are applicable to all age groups, with only a small amount of adaption. It’s been fantastic to meet up with teachers who want to share good practice. I’m thankful for the time and effort put into the RQT course!” (RQT, 2016)
