    Although induction is statutory you have to be employed for the minimum of a full time term in order to meet the requirement that assessment is carried out each term. On a .2 contract that would be 5 terms. There is a provision for an interim assessment of less than a term which you should discuss with your mentor and induction coordinator.
     
  2. Yes you are entitled to the timetable reduction even on one day per week. Now in truth that means a 2% reduction in your contact time and if you tried to work it out so that it happened each week it would be a silly amount. In such a case what should happen is an accumulation of the time and periodically a release from teaching that is meaningful. perhaps store up the 2% time to create a half day now and then (every 5 weeks) - this time could be covered by a cover supervisor/supply teacher and you could do meaningful work towards meeting the standards.

    I'd imagine that as you only work 1 day a week and you will not complete a full term's worth of teaching then the school has decided the post is not appropriate for induction.
