NQT Pool, jobs and supply

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by IamIronman, Apr 7, 2011.

  1. Hello,

    I'm also posting this on the Unemployed and Supply forums as I'm desparate for some advice.

    on supply and the school I'm at has a vacancy. I want to apply, the
    deputy and head want me to apply, but it's only been advertised to NQT
    pool members - they didn't realise I wasn't in the NQT pool. I'm not
    signed up to the particular pool as I've been qualified since 2007 but
    not gained a FT job (worked in independent and as TA for most of that
    time, only just moved into state school as teacher) and didn't think I
    could gain a place so late after qualifying.

    Is there any legal malarky that could stop me from applying?

    The obvious solution is to get your application into the pool pronto. The only legal restrictions on induction is the 16 month rule that limits the time on non induction supply a qualified teacher can do. That is 16 months from the first supply date regardless of how much/little is done. This only applies to the maintained sector and any time spent solely in independents does not affect the ruling. The 16 month limit can be increased by 12 months by an appropriate Body.
