Dear Sara, I am nearly two thirds through my NQT year, and things are not going too well. I feel bullied, undermined, and very demoralised. As a result, my teaching is suffering and is, on my own reckoning, below the standard that it was during my PGCE. On the one hand I feel that it would be better to battle through, to see what happens. However, I think I have read somewhere that if you fail your NQT year you are not allowed to do it again. Is that true? I appreciate that it would be difficult to find another job, but I want to know if you are actually prohibited from doing the NQT year again. I am just wondering whether I should quit now, do something else for a while and then start again. In summary - what are the options if you fail your NQT year?
