I am an NQT and in January started my first full time post in year 6 as maternity cover. The school is great and I am really enjoying it, even though it is quite a challenge. I love having my own class and have received really good feedback on a variety of areas. Now, another teacher (not the one who I am covering for), has decided to come back to work part time, so I am being given my class for the afternoons and 1 to 1 tuition of the year 6s in the mornings. Will this count towards my NQT? They say that they don't want to lose me, and that they will "make sure" that it counts, I don't want to go anywhere but I need to know that I will get my NQT year done (or at least one full term). I am currently employed until 15 March through a supply agency who put the school in touch with me, and after that should go onto a contract but from what they are saying, other people have waited ages for contracts. I'm worried about consistency for the class too, this is all changing yet again for them right before the SATs. Please advise! Thanks!
