Updated Newly Qualified Teaching funding information

The induction for newly qualified teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic guidance previously stated that a one-off payment was available to all state-funded schools with NQTs completing their induction in summer 2021. This has been changed to all state-funded schools that have, or had, an NQT who completed their induction between the summer term of 2021 and the spring term of 2022. Payment will be made in arrears in the summer of 2022 based on eligible teachers recorded in the school workforce census, received as part of normal payments from the ESFA.
