Hi Im doing a PGCE Primary vourse and finish in 9 weeks. I've been offered a job which is maternity cover for 1 year (i presume) with extending the contract if all goes well and the budget allows. However - i've heard people say before that they wern't able to complete their NQT year due to the person coming back from maternity before the end of the year etc. I'm worried now that i'll end up in a sticky situation if i accept the position! She said wether i can extend my contract depends on the budget next year which comes out in March but i don't understand that, if it's not to do with the maternity cover person coming back and taking the job back then surely they will still need the same amount of teachers?! I don't know what to do, please help!
