I am in an administrative mess and looking to see if anyone has had the same experience. I qualified in 2007, completed induction in 2008. Progressed up the payscale normally to M6. Left my job in 2014 and spent a year elsewhere. I've just signed up for a supply agency, and when they did an NCTL trace on me, it showed that I never completed my NQT year. I rang the NCTL straight away and the directed me to my LA record keeping office, who also have no record of me passing induction. This is massively complicated by the fact the school I taught in became part of an academy federation, with a whole new SLT, and even a new LA. The school have all my HR paperwork but can't find any of my observations or the paperwork that was completed during my NQT year. I know it was done because I remember what was written, and I remember completing my own against the teaching standards. I suspect my mentor never sent it off. I didn't receive a certificate, but stupidly, it never occurred to me that I was supposed to, and nobody ever mentioned it. As it is, I now can't work as a qualified teacher until it is resolved, and nobody knows what to do with me. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions about what I could do? Sorry for the lengthy post in personal, I wasn't sure where this fitted in!
