I completed one term of my NQT September 2014-December 2014. I had to take a break from teaching on medical grounds but have since built up more classroom experience from EYFS Pre School through to year 6. I want to complete my NQT year but after several applications it seems school may be reluctant to take me as a "partial" NQT and such a gap in my teaching career. I don't know what to do! It's so disheartening. If i was able to explain why the gap is there and justify why this was essential and completely out of my hands it would make perfect sense! I have applied for and had interviews but as soon they ask why i have a gap its like hitting a wall every time. Feedback is always really positive but that's as far as i get.
