Hi, I'm just looking for some general advice and to see where I stand because my school have asked me to look into this. I qualified in Primary in November 2009. Since then I've been on supply doing various things, most recently working on long term supply as an outreach teacher at a school for students who have been excluded from mainstream. While I was doing this there was no way I could to my NQT year because it wasn't based in a classroom situation. The school did have three sites and I was based at the site for the older students, mainly KS4. Now the school has moved to two brand new buildings and I have been asked to teach the PSHE and some SEAL to the entire lower school every morning. This is fine by me because it means I carry on getting my teaching experience etc. Also I've come off supply and been given a proper six month contract. What I want to know is can I start doing my NQT year now? Even though it's in a special school and it's only five mornings a week. Plus the fact that it's only teaching one subject. These aspects make me think I might not be able to start yet, but at the same time I am now doing proper teaching with the planning and marking etc. School have said for me to try and find out a bit about it because things are up in the air at the moment with the moves to the new sites etc. Obviously I'm keen to start my NQT so I'm just wondering if anyone's ever had a similar situation to this and what happened. The school has put people through the NQT year before so I know it can be done in a school like this one. Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
