    I am looking for a part-time NQT position (I already have a jobshare partner). I get the feeling that most heads are reluctant to employ NQTs on a part time basis. Why is this? We are both mature and have lots of other skills to bring to teaching....

    Well, I can give no advice on this as I have not come across this myself.
    As a general rule, of course, p-timers involve a little more effort from the school leaders to accommodate you. This despite the fact that everyone knows that 2 part-timers = more than 1 FT person, because you both put in such a lot more.
    Just ensure that you spell out clearly the advantages for the school of having, half way through the week, someone who is fresh as a Monday daisy!
    Good luck!
