    Dismiss Notice

NQT and handing in notice of leave

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by scalum94, Nov 4, 2019.

  1. Hello bit of a tricky situation! As an NQT, if you hand in your notice of leave, how much time is the school required to keep you on as a minimum?
    I am now starting my second term of employment, however deciding to hand in my notice of leave. However, a big issue is that the school is saying that I can only continue working on my maternity contract, or to resign immediately despite how much notice I give.
    This seemed really odd to me as although I wish to leave, the employer in any other job would surely have to give you a period of leave, rather than dismissing you without notice?
    There were too many factors for me to find a clear answer myself!

    It depends on your contract School Teacher Pay & Conditions has set periods of a half terms notice . If you are under another contract the statutory notice period of one week in your first year of employment.

    I've had a period of notice to work following the acceptance of my resignation. If you don't mind me asking, why are you leaving please?
