NIPT Information and Key Dates
Welcome to the NIPT page for Waterford Teachers' Centre.
I enclose the Primary & Post Primary NIPT Workshops Programme from September 2018 - November 2018.
Important Information for NQTs regarding their registration requirements for the Teaching Council.
● Attendance at the NIPT Induction Workshop Programme is a requirement
● Workshops are not a requirement for NQTs engaging in the Droichead process.
● However, NQTs participating in Droichead can count this workshop as an Additional Professional Learning Activity , with the agreement of their Professional Support Team in school.
● If you are teaching in a school with 16 or more classroom teachers (Primary), or more than 400 pupils (Post-primary) or in a SEN Setting, your only route of Induction is via the Droichead process.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Centre at 051 311000 or email
NQTs should note and discuss the following information with their PST members:
NQTs must apply for Droichead via the ‘My Registration’ portal on www.teachingcouncil.ie and receive a confirmation email before attending Cluster Meeting 1.
Cluster Meeting 1 must be attended before attending other cluster meetings and we recommend that NQTs attend Cluster Meeting 1 ASAP after commencing the Droichead process.
NQTs are required to attend one cluster meeting (specific to their sector, Primary or Post-Primary) per term in sequential order for the duration of their Droichead Process.
NQTs must register with Waterford Teachers' Centre www.wtc.ie to attend a cluster meeting. Waterford Teachers' Centre will schedule dates/times and advertise the cluster meetings locally on their website.
