Welcome to the NIPT page for Waterford Teachers' Centre.
National Induction Programme for Teachers (NIPT) Induction and Droichead Workshops Term 2020-21
Induction Workshop Programme
As you are aware, a number of Induction workshops became available online during Term 3 2019-20. That online suite continues to be available to NQTs who require them throughout the Term ahead (2020-21) via the NIPT online learning platform. Unfortunately, face-to-face workshops will not run in Term 1 2020-21 as the Induction workshops will be entirely online for this Term.
Two new online workshops will be added to the suite mid-way through this Term:
- Teacher Professionalism and Well-Being, NIPTWS01 (Cross-Sectoral)
- Múineadh na Gaeilge, NIPTWS12 (Primary)
NIPT: Droichead - Cluster Meeting 1
Applications for the Droichead process are now open. As in previous years, NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email from the Teaching Council before registering for Cluster Meeting 1. Cluster Meeting 1 will be available online only during Term 1 2020. This provision will begin in early October via the NIPT online learning platform https://onlinelearning.teacherinduction.ie and will be available for NQTs to complete during their Droichead process at any time that is convenient for them. There will not be a requirement for NQTs to register with their local EC to attend or to have Form D stamped by their EC upon completion of Cluster Meeting 1. NIPT will manage the registration and attendance process during this time. Full details will be provided to NQTs who engage with this online cluster meeting on https://onlinelearning.teacherinduction.ie. Please monitor the NIPT website www.teacherinduction.ie for further updates.
