  1. Please can someone answer these questions. Thank You.
    How set in stone is the 10% NQT time?
    What is meant to be acheived in this time?

  3. The 10% NQT time must be provided by law. A school delivering induction but not providing this time is breaking the law. So yes, it is 'set in stone' so to speak.
    The time must be used for induction related activities it is not just 'free time' or non-contact or extra time for planning marking and assessment. You should, for example be working on gathering evidence towards a portfolio (if your LA or school requires one); you could use the time to observe other teachers, either in your subject area or age phase; you could ask for release to attend courses and extra training to address areas that you have identified as 'weak' or in need of extra training. Your LA may also run induction courses which you may attend in this time. You can also use it to do self directed learning on areas that you wish to improve.
    In short there should be plenty for you to occupy yopurself in the 10%.
