Hi, not sure if this is in the right place. I started my NQT year in September at the same school I did my PGCE with. I was informed at the end of my PGCE before starting my NQT year that it was unlikely I would be employed permanently following completion of my NQT due to funding. It hasn't been mentioned since but my future at the school hasn't been mentioned either. I have had a lot of issues at the school and was advised by my university tutor to see my NQT year through but start looking for jobs and get out of the school and find somewhere near home asap. I currently live nearly 2 hours away from my teaching school. I have seen some jobs I would like to apply for and some which are teaching roles but not in schools others are teaching roles. I know I will need to ask my school for a reference, but how do I do this and what circumstance can I use for asking for one? I know my mentor will ask why I need one now when I haven't finished my NQT year. Any advise would be fab!
