Hi all, I'm new to the forums and could really do with some advice at the minute. I qualified in June 2014 as an English teacher and since have done a short-term post (less than 2 months) in a school before moving into supply and tutoring for 6 months, so am still an NQT. I've had some horrible experiences both during and since my training, which have nearly drove me out of the profession altogether - they definitely drove me out of mainstream teaching. I'm now working as a TA in a Special Needs School (wanted the SEN experience, loved the school and wanted to rebuild confidence) and absolutely love it. I'm in an environment that makes me want to give teaching another try, and am eager to find a position in an SEN school to complete my NQT year. I've looked for clarification though, but am still confused - is completing my NQT year in a SEN school actually possible? And as well, I'm confused with the '5 year rule' about starting Induction. We may be moving to a different part of the country within the next few years which will limit my options somewhat - if I don't start induction within 5 years of qualifying, what will that mean for doing supply teaching? Will I be able to complete my NQT year later if I miss the 5 year period? And if I am able to start it later, are there any limits about where/how I do it (e.g. could I still do it in an SEN school if that's possible)? Any advice would be really appreciated!
