Title is self-explanatory. NQT, beginning at a school with only one other person in the department and a huge amount of changes taking place. I can prepare for GCSE content as I have the specifications to refer to, but I have absolutely no idea what Year 7, 8 and 9 are doing. I've been given no scheme of work, no resource, or really any communication that will enable me to prepare for the year ahead. Essentially I'm going in blind. As an NQT, should I expect some form of communication to be taking place around this time to enable me to get off to a good start. Right now I feel like I've simply been employed and expected to get on with it.
