Can a NQT leave after the easter break in their second term and pick it back up?

    The minimum period of assessment is one term Induction cannot be repeated each term is banked as it is the cumulative process of 3 terms which results in passing induction year.
    You should take union advice and discuss the issues before leaving your post.

    Of course it looks better to stick it out.

    But for some that's really not an option - if the school "isn't for you", it's easy to make yourself very ill by trying to continue and you risk failing the induction completely. Also, of course, the kids are hardly getting their best chance from a teacher who really doesn't want to be doing the job!

    So, while leaving early isn't the greatest thing to have on your CV, if it keeps you sane, then you have to do it. Many NQTs have moved on before completion of induction, found new posts and gone on to do very well. It's not impossible!
  4. Hi Cassandradoble, Have you banked your first NQT term?
    January to end of March is a whole term, am I right?
