Can the 10% NQT release time be used for NQTs to attend training?

The 10% NQT time is for professional development. Whilst on some occasions this may be used for attending training courses it should not solely be used for this. The additional time may also be used for things such as visiting other schools, collating evidence for the Teachers’ Standards, observing other teachers and much more. It must not be used for PPA, as the 10% NQT time is only available in the Induction year and if NQT’s are using this time for PPA then they will struggle next year when they do not have it.
