I know NQTs only have 16 months on supply before they have to apply for an extension/complete NQT year but there seems to be some confusion as to whether completing part of the NQT year stops the clock. Say somebody started supply after Easter last year for the summer term. Then they managed to get 2 terms of NQT done over autumn and spring terms this year and are now back doing supply. Would their 16month clock have stopped or is it still going and they have to apply for their extension in July this year? We were given conflicting stories whilst at uni and can't really find anything that makes sense online.
