I'm currently at IoE doing my Secondary English PGCE and I've just been offered a job for Sept 2012 (woohoo!). However... The school is charity-funded, it is for "disengaged" students (don't you love such an enigmatic term!) and currently has Year 10 and Year 11s on managed moves out of mainstream schools from 5 London boroughs. They're studying for their GCSEs and their current English teacher will be leaving at the end of Summer Term 2012. My question is, what does a school need to be able to give QTS? I wanted to do my NQT year straightaway and feel like I need some more background, any background on how/which schools are qualified to sanction QTS. The school are looking into this too but I'd like to find out what I can as well. Any advice would be so very gratefully received. Thanks, Emma.
