How to register your NQTs

Schools who are already registered with NQTSW can register new NQTs directly by adding them onto NQT Manager. Go to your school information page and select ‘Register an NQT’. The agreement at the start of the registration is the same as completing our Service Level Agreement below. All new registrations will then be authorised by us as the Appropriate Body before access is granted to the NQT’s account.

Alternatively please complete one registration form per NQT and one Service Level Agreement per school. The downloads below are in pdf format; if you would prefer word documents please email us:
