Bedford Borough Local authority is committed to enabling all individuals and communities in Bedford to reach their full potential. High calibre teachers are crucial to this process.
We have over 80 schools covering all phases which includes Academies and a Free School. We have a range of schools operating in a two or three tier system which serves a variety of rural and urban settings but all are committed to delivering a first class education to Bedford Borough's young people.
All maintained schools in the local authority benefit from a rigorous newly qualified teacher induction process where NQTs and their induction tutors receive support and training from the local authority co-ordinator.
Details of the Support for Newly Qualified Teachers can be accessed here.
