I am NQT who has been working in a school for almost 4 terms now but on a part time contract so have only completed 2 terms of my "induction year." I have not been allowed to take NQT time and my school asked me to write on my last form that I had taken it and then they would make it up to me. I currently have over 30 hours owing to me and only 9 days left until my contract runs out in July. I have therefore asked to have 2 whole days out to use up some of my NQT time so I don't lose it all. My 'mentor' said I can't have the time unless I give her exact breakdown of what I will be doing on that day for CPD purposes only! When I told her that I would be visiting other schools she said I could do observations on the teachers in our school beacuse they can't justify paying supply teacher for a whold day. There are no CPD courses for me to go on so late in the year and if I can't do that or visit other schools I'm worried will dip out on ALL my NQT time. What else can I use this time if I have to give a breakdown of my actions for the time that I am out? Can I use it for research into my specialism or extra planning time? Please help. Thanks in advance!
