Golden Hello and teaching 2 subjects

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by anon2047, Apr 20, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    Does anyone know if I am still eligible for the golden hello if i am teaching my PGCE subject as well as another subject?
    Is it advisable to do your NQT year teaching two subjects or is it better to concentrate on the on?
    I have seen a job I wish to apply for and there is also another position teaching my subject and another one that I could teach.
    Thanks for the advice

    I taught 4 so yes you can (although there is no allowance for not meeting the standards if you agree to teach outside your subject area). Not too sure whats happening with golden hellos now. Hoping we'll still get it! x

    The Golden hello rules require you to be teaching the specialism in which you trained for at least 50% of your timetable for at least a term after completing Induction.
  4. Thanks very much for the info!
  5. Hi
    To be eligible for the golden hello you must teach a timetable where your PGCE subject involves at least 50% of your teaching time.
    If you teach outside your PGCE subject during induction it is allowed but no allowance for this is given in having to meet the standards.
  6. Hi James,
    Thank you for the advice.
