Dear James: Advantages/disadvantages doing induction year in a sector you didn't train in

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by James_Williams, May 15, 2011.

  1. People have successfully completed induction in a subject and age phase for which they were not trained. You still have to meet the standards in full and there is no reduction in the standards for the fact that you are not in the phase and/or subject for which you were trained.
    How an interview panel will look upon you is difficult to say. It will, in part depend on how you present yourself. If they feel you are just desperate to get induction done and don't care to teach in secondary really, then they will not be impressed. If you can show a love of English - provide a reasoned argument for takinmg your primary skills into secondary (perhaps emphasisinbg the transition aspect of what you know and can do, they may be more accommodating.
