National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT) - Overview

The National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT) supports the induction of newly qualified teachers (NQTs), both primary and post-primary, into the teaching profession in Ireland.

The NIPT provide five pillars of support:-

  • the NQT workshop programme
  • website support
  • school-based support
  • school visits and
  • professional support groups. 

An Information Booklet for Newly Qualified Teachers is available to download (see attachment at end of this section).

The NIPT Workshop Programme is a series of two-hour workshops, designed to support the professional development of Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs). The programme, run in collaboration with ATECI (Association of Education Centres of Ireland), Department of Education and Skills (DES) and the Teaching Council, is facilitated by practising teachers from local schools, in each of the 21 full-time education centres.
