I have been told at work that my NQT time is now to be banked, and I am not allowed to take it on a weekly basis. I have to save it up, and then take a day to observe other teaching/other schools etc. I'm sure this is allowed, and makes sense to me as it's useful to do these things with my NQT time. However, I'm worried that if I want to go on a course then I'll have to use my NQT time to do so. I don't think that should be the case - am I right? Thanks for your help.
