Lesson Observations and their bearing on NQT Assessment

    I have a question regarding this process.
    I have a colleague who is part-time and therefore on the not termly assessments. This colleague has just had his first NQT assessment, however since starting with us in September has not been observed by his mentor.
    He has been given unsatisfactory progress towards the standards.
    My colleague is a little concerned, and does not want to rock the boat by challenging this. My question is therefore whether he should have been formally observed before this assessment was done as much of standards are related to classroom practice which has not been witness.
    Thank you
