Points We Will Cover: What is BLT Online NQT Service? What are the advantages of using it? User roles on the site Registering new NQTs Submitting NQT assessments What happens when an NQT finishes their induction? Support
BLT Online NQT Service BLT Online NQT Service is the new NQT area on our already very popular BLT Online site Use BLT Online to book all of your courses and purchase all of your traded services The BLT Online site can be accessed at www.learningtrust.com www.learningtrust.com The NQT website for all information regarding the induction process provided by Buckinghamshire Learning Trust, support forms, advice and guidance is at nqt.learningtrust.netnqt.learningtrust.net
The Advantages No more huge email attachments No more scanning signatures No need to send anything in the post to us Automatic sign-off process for assessments All NQT records from each school stored securely online More efficient, stream-lined process for schools and the BLT NQT team
NQT User Role An ‘NQT’ can…. View their registration form Review, add comments and sign off each assessment Add evidence (if they wish to)
Induction Tutor User Role An ‘Induction Tutor’ can…. Add new users Add registration forms Write and sign off assessments Have access to all NQTs’ records assigned to that induction tutor (even after the NQT has completed their induction) Add evidence for their NQT (if they wish to)
Headteacher User Role An ‘Headteacher’ can…. Add new users Add registration forms Read and sign off assessments Have access to all NQTs’ records assigned to that school (even after completion of induction) Add evidence for their NQTs (if they wish to)
What happens if I have mentors as well as induction tutors? At present, a school can have as many Induction Tutors and Headteachers on the system as required but an NQT can only be assigned 1 Induction Tutor and 1 Headteacher. We are in discussions with the web company about the possibility of introducing a mentor role. If you require your mentors to have induction tutor access instead of the current induction tutor assigned to your NQTs but you still wish your induction tutor to have access to all of the NQT’s records we can provide the main induction tutor with reviewer rights (which work the same way as Headteacher rights). Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
To Register an NQT School bursar purchases NQT induction package on Traded Services e-store and puts it into basket. BLT request key details before processing the invoice to ensure NQT is eligible for induction. Once details confirmed, invoice is released and Induction Tutor/Head can add NQT as new user (see below):
When logged in as Induction Tutor or Head, select ‘add NQT’ from ‘NQTs’ dropdown list in order to set up a new user
Complete the registration form including all mandatory fields (marked with a red *)
Induction end date will auto populate (therefore can be left blank) IF the following 3 conditions apply: 1) The NQT starts their induction period on 1 st September 2) The NQT is working full time AND 3) The NQT has not served any part of their induction already. If these conditions do NOT apply, enter the completion date you believe to be correct and put a note in the ‘induction end notes’ field. The NQT admin team will be able to check this field when they authorise the form.
If an NQT Has Served Part of Their Induction Elsewhere On the registration form, select ‘yes’ radio button in the ‘Has the NQT already completed part of their induction elsewhere?’ field: Then click ‘Add new school’ to add details of previous school and number of assessments completed there. After submitting the registration form, upload the previous assessment(s) into the evidence section (which can be found next to the NQT’s name on your list of registered NQTs).
What Happens Next? On saving the registration form, it will be submitted to the BLT NQT Admin team for approval. Once approved, the Induction Tutor and NQT will be emailed confirmation, along with assessment due dates. The first assessment will then be ‘unlocked’ for use.
