It really varies from school to school - there have been plenty of horror stories on here but also some positive ones! I am also coming to the end of my NQT year and as the previous poster said, still have loads to learn! I think that teaching will always be like that, because each new class you get bring with them a different set of challenges.
Good luck for the year, and when things get their darkest (I had a christmas meltdown and nearly didnt go back) just grit your teeth and plough through because things really do start falling into place!!!
I was largely left to my own devices during my NQT year. There were people I could go to, however, if I needed to. It was nice that I didn't have people constantly watching over me; they would pop in occasionally and go away without saying anything, so things must have been alright!
It does vary from school to school, though, and also how much the NQT struggles. I'm sure you'll be fine, though!
