NQT induction

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by misse2020, Mar 23, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    Sorry I haven't replied to the fab advice on my last post yet.
    If I leave my current post (as teacher I'm covering maternity for will come back mid way through term), and I don't get another post straight away, what does this mean? Do I have a time limit to complete my induction?
    It will mean I have completed just 1 term of induction (passed it).
    Can I supply for a bit and get my head together, or is that a ticking bomb for passing my induction?
    I have also just been accepted to teach a leisure learning course in a subject I am passionate about :)
    I'm confused - sorry!

    There's no ticking clock on induction. The ticking clock is on non-induction

    Under the current rules, that clock starts ticking the moment you do your first bit of non-induction teaching. From then on you have 16 months where you can work non-induction supply. Then (unless you get the 1 year extension), you cannot do any more teaching in a non-induction capacity.
  3. Thanks Paul.

    So if I do this leisure learning job, does that mean that will count as my non-induction teaching time?

    Do I have to pass my induction still if I want to teach adults?

    Just so worried I won't get another job as easily as I did before
  4. Thank you so much for all your help [​IMG]

    So basically, I can teach/tutor and lecture in the post 16 sector forever and not have to complete induction. This makes me very happy. Amazingly, I have found this is what I love teaching the most [​IMG]
    I will still apply for posts to finish my induction year after this maternity contract is over (just because it'd be good to have), but at least I know it isn't the be all and end all to me.
    I didn't do any luckily [​IMG]
