There is a lot of conflicting information and I have a slightly unusual case. I qualified in 2008 and was unable to secure a post locally and could not move away, so instead I took a support post and carried on searching for a job. In January 2010 I began a temporary post providing two terms maternity cover and successfully completed two terms of my NQT. However I have found myself unable to secure another post to complete my final term. What I really need to know is whether or not there is a time limit on when I have to have my NQT completed and what would happen if I did not meet the deadline. Thanks in advance!
