    How long after you have started induction do you have to complete it? If you have done two terms and then had to leave (as you were told you would fail) how long can you do have to finish the final term?

    Are you sure that candidates will have to have completed Induction by the end of the proposed 5 year limit.
    My understanding was that it will be a simple extension of the 16 month supply (n0n-Induction) limitto 5 years, after which (as now) you don't need to have completed Induction ... you simply can't teach again in the State 5-16 sectors unless it's an Induction placement. Actually completing Induction can be years later if that's how long it takes to secure Induction work.

    Also my understanding is that you could(currently) only do 16 months of supply before you START induction....so once you've started, and done 2 terms, you could do as much supply as you like without completing induction. So in theory never complete it but still teach supply.
    I could be wrong though.
  4. We need to wait for the details of the consultation to come out - the consultation is only now at an end.
    If you have two terms then you have one term to complete and this currently has no time limit. If you have used up your 16 months of daily supply time you can apply for an extension of up to one year from the LA in which you wish to work. If you do not have the extension then you cannot carry on doing supply if your 16 months is up, UNLESS you have say a part timew job that qualifies for induction, then on the days that you are not teaching in your induction school you can do daily supply in any other school.

    Sorry, but you are wrong.
    It doesn't matter if you have completed one two or zero terms of Induction, the 16 month (non-Induction) supply allowance counts down from the first day of that supply work, whetehr that first day was before starting Induction or after completing some Induction, and the automatic permission to take non-Induction supply expires 16 months later.
    There is then the possibility of up to another 12 months' permission on application to the LA.
    Without the original allowance and possible extension, you have to stop teaching in the State 5-16 sector if Induction ahs not been started OR completed and can only teach again if it's a placement that allows Induction to continue or finish (p/t or f/t basis).
    As said in the above post, you could be on p/t Induction after using up all supply allowances and still be able to take random supply days on the other days of the week BECAUSE you are officially registered as an NQT on Induction at the same time.
