Leaving part way through NQT but already have job lined up

    Hi, just hoping for some advice :)

    I am wondering what happens if you have been offered a job during the NQT year but then resign from your current post early - therefore having one term of NQT left to complete in your new role.

    Presumably it would be necessary to let your new school know that you still have one term to complete? I'm not sure how well that will go down as they will have assumed you will have completed the NQT year prior to taking up the role with them.

    Perhaps a strange situation!

    I would be seriously ****** if I appointed someone who I thought had completed their NQT year only to find out they hadn’t. That’s another session to find cover for, paperwork to complete, concern that they might NOT pass. Not good. If you are thinking of doing this, I would speak to the future Head first!

    Why have you resigned? I thought NQT's were going to receive an automatic pass even though they had not had a chance to complete the year.

    I'd tend to see that as breaking an implied term of the contract. Unless this is negotiated very carefully......
