You are qualified. You have Qualified Teacher Status and it's your for life. You even remain qualified if you fail your Induction year!You just can't teach any longer in the State 5-16 sector. You can teach in the State Post 16 sector or the private sector (any age group). Induction can be completed at any point after you get QTS and it is not part of your ITT (that was your teaching degree course). You don't need a permanent post to undertake Induction. I completed all my Induction ona supply basis (daily rate) at two schools, with a 5 term gap between the end of the second term and starting the 3rd Induction term. I have still never had a permanent post! You can be LA or agency employed and still undertake Induction. It must simply be known from the outset that the intention is for you to still be in post a term's length later and that you will plan and assess a regular timetable. You get the 10% timetable reduction too. Maternity covers are the usual supply route to Induction. Whilst waiting for Induction terms (which can start at any point in a school term) you can take non-Induction supply teaching during a 16 month Supply Rule allowance. The 16 months count down from your first day of non-Induction supply in the 5-16 State sector.
