    Whatever work you do this year, your sixteen months counts from Oct '11. The five year rule has gone so after Feb next year, you can continue to look for posts of at least a term.

    The 16 month limit kicks in on the first date of supply work. The clock continues to tick from that date irrespective of how much or little you do and continues until induction is completed. Once the 16 month limit is reached then an appropriate Body- LA' can extend the non induction supply limit for a further 12 month period maximum. The plans are to dispense with the 16 month limit and have a flat priod from gaining QTS to achieving induction and legislation is being prepared for this which should be in later this year. Until then current regulations apply.
  3. The 16 months currently starts on the first ay of supply and neds 16 moths later and is not interrupted by anything. Under current regulations, you would need to apply for an extension past Feb 2013. That said the induction rules are under review and may change (especially the 16 month rule) though how that will apply to existing NQTs is as yet unknown.
