Changes to NQT statutory induction in Wales

7 November 2022 

Following a public consultation on proposals to change statutory induction arrangements for newly qualified teachers in Wales, changes come into force from 7 November 2022.


Changes include:

  • allowing induction to be undertaken in PRUs
  • introducing flexibility: ABs have discretion to reduce the length of the induction period for NQTs who can demonstrate that they meet the standards in less than three terms / 380 sessions
  • introducing a time limit for the satisfactory completion of induction

Revised guidance on all the changes has been published on Hwb.
