Hi, My partner completed his PGCE last year and has been completing his NQT year since September 2015. At the end of term 1 (Dec 31st) he resigned from his first school due to him feeling very unsupported in his school. He had at this point completed his first term as an NQT. From January 2016 - August 2016 he is employed part-time (2 days a week) at another school. We have been told that if he were to continue teaching from September (full-time) his NQT year would be done by January. However, due to his stressful and unsupportive start he has been put off teaching and is looking at going into coaching (he is a PE teacher with coaching qualifications). My question is, if he doesn’t complete his NQT in the next academic year will he be able to return to teaching? If so, will he have to take a different route back in? Thanks for any help or advice you can give.
