NQT induction period advice needed

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by Vikki27, Mar 31, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    I'm basically asking advice and to see if anyone knows how I
    should speak to about this. I accepted a Maternity Cover position in
    KS1 and started at the beginning of November. I had an observation in
    the 5 weeks I taught leading up to Christmas but was told I couldn't
    start my NQT properly because it wasn't a full term I was teaching for.
    I have now completed my first term induction for the Spring term but
    have just been told me contract will not be extended past the end of
    June - meaning my Summer term won't be a full term either. My head
    doesn't think the Summer term will count towards induction again because
    it's not a full term. However, it's only 3 weeks short of a full term
    and as I worked 5 weeks up until Christmas doesn't that count for
    anything? It seems really unfair. I'll have done all the necessary
    planning and assessments etc and done parents evenings and reports.
    Does anyone know where I stand on this and whether it's worth taking
    further?
    Thankyou in advance.
