Hi, I have read lots of confusing and contradictory advice regarding the time limit on NQTs to complete the induction. I know there isn't a time limit to START the induction, but what if you have already started your induction? I completed 1 term in a school (Sep - Jan) in a temporary (non-supply) position. I have been working as a long-term supply teacher since Feb. Unfortunately the school weren't able to let this period count towards my induction due to costs and so technically I have still only completed 1 term towards my NQT year. Is there a 5-year time limit? I also read that there is a 2-year time limit. Do i only have 4 academic years left? Or 1 year? If I can't find a position in that time, will I not be able to work in schools after that time? None of the statutory guidance clears this up and naturally, I'm quite worried. Thank you in advance for any advice you could give.
