NQT/Induction year completion

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by fimbozac, Sep 12, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I completed my primary PGCE back in 2007 and managed one term of my induction year during a temporary y3 post.
    I am now working in a unit teaching primary children that have been excluded from school. I have all the responsibilities of a 'normal' teacher and would be able to gain my standards no problem in this role.
    We are a charity based organisation and have links with local schools where the pupils come to us from. We are not within a local authority however.
    The question is, would this setting be ok for me to complete my induction year? I have looked on the TDA website and they stipulate that it cannot be carried out in a PRU but we aren't technically a PRU, although very similar.
    My line manager said he would be supportive if I was allowed to proceed but I don't have a clue what to do next...
    Any help from teachers who have experienced this or similar would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance
  2. If this is a private facility it may not qualify for induction. The first thing to establish is if the unit is classed as a school by the DfE - if it is then there is a chance. In the end it will be up to the Local Authority to decide if induction can be done. If it can then it would be on the same basis as a private school which means that the unit would most likely have to pay the LA for the induction process to be run and validated.
    Contact the LA NQT adviser - speak to them about what ypu do and tell them about the unit - they will tell you if it is suitable for induction or not.
  3. Thanks James,
    This is very helpful and has pointed me in the right direction.
    Much appreciated
