Hello I am a NQT Primary B.Ed (Hons) and qualified in 2008. According to a 2008 publication "The Induction Period a guide for students and newly qualified teachers" it states that an NQT has a 5 year timeline in which to complete their Induction Period. Since qualifying in 2008 I have had no such luck in finding a suitable position and have had plenty of supply work short term and long term. Out of all those schools none have been able to let me complete or work towards my Induction Period. I do have a part time position coming up but the school cannot support the NQT at this time. My questions are: Does the 5 year rule still apply or has it changed to 3? What are my options? I have been in contact with my LEA but they were clueless and were unable to answer my questions.
