    Hi. I am an NQT applying for a job. The letter states that all teachers at the school have subject responsibility and asks to state subject expertise/interest and "if appropriate the willingness to take on something new (unless an NQT)".
    I am quite keen to take on a subject at some point, but my questions are these:
    1. Can I take on a subject as an NQT?
    2. Does this subject responsibility mean the same as TLR?
    Thankyou
    Terri

  3. 1. Can I take on a subject as an NQT?
    You can but are not obliged nor recommended to, as NQTs are protected from this additonal repsonsiblity - I would take this if I were you as carte blanche to focus solely on your teaching!
    2. Does this subject responsibility mean the same as TLR? NO if only!!!

    Thanks Miss Pious - great advice.
    What does a TLR entail then please? Does that mean like a subject co-ordinator? (Won't take a subject on next year now I know ;0) - while I can get away with it then!!)
    Thanks again
    Terri
