NQT Been Abroad

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by andal, Jan 20, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I completed a Primary PGCE in England in 2004, I worked for one year (4 days a week) in England and then moved abroad to teach at an international school. Do you know if, when I return to the UK, I can just carry on teaching and, after a few months, gain QTS or if I will need to undergo more training?
    Thanks for your help!
     
  2. Sorry, not QTS (which I have) but the induction period.

    If you have started inductuion in the UK you should have copies of your termly assessment. Working 4 days a week you should have completed at least 1 term. You can then continue with inductionfor 2 terms already having a term's assessment. However if the school did not register you as an NQT then you have not yet started induction but have started supply working. This has a bearing upon the time left for non induction supply work which is calculated at 16 months from the first date of non induction teaching- after 16 months has elapsed you have to seek permission from an LA to continue to work supply.

    You should have completed 2 terms of Induction when employed in the UK after getting QTS.
    You now need to get the final Induction term completed and needa job intended to last for at least a term's length. That can be a permanent post or a supply post (with daily pay). It can be a p/t or f/t post. Obviously a p/t post would need you to serve more than a term before the Induction term were completed, but you could still be registered as an NQT on Induction if the p/t post is only originally intended to last for aterm's length (from any point in one school term until at least the same point in the next).
