    Yes, it is. It shouldn't be but a lot of schools do it. Sometimes it is a genuine fixed term contract (to cover a secondment, for example) and some turn into permanent posts.

    Yes if they don't expect or are not sure they need a teacher long term. Seen it with MFL - prob more of an issue with minority subject teachers (like MFL although Eng bac may change that). As I understand it though the school would be in trouble with the union if they kept doing it to save costs, as in there is a real perm position but they are using NQTs as cheap labour. In the case I know of that NQT was offered a perm post but teaching lots of non-MFL lessons and so they moved on.NQTs often move on anyway!
