Sorry, but that is not true. If someone started at the beginning of this term and resigns to leave at the 31st December, they will have completed one Induction term. It will either be deemed to be on track for meeting the Induction standards or not on track. It's only the final Induction verdict that matters though. You can be not meeting the standards for 2 Induction terms and then meet them at the final hurdle. You can also start Induction terms mid-term. The only stipulation is that it is known from the start of the employment that you are intended to still be employed at the same point in the following school term (based on a 3 term school year). Don't let a Head say that there will be no Induction term starting, and no 10% reduced timetable, until a new school term sgtarts and you are being kept on until the end of that term.
