NQT question

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by JustAnotherNQT, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    apologies for creating a new user name but I need to remain anonymous with this question.
    I am an NQT and teach KS5 only (at a mainstream secondary school). I have never really taught KS3 or 4, apart from very little experience during my training placement. I have now been informed that I need more experience teaching KS3 and 4 before I can pass my induction period. This is the first time I heard about this and I was wondering if anyone else could confirm the rules to me.
    Thanks, JustAnotherNQT

    It sounds like they're following section 2.10 of the induction guidelines - Teachers in sixth form colleges/FE are expected to complete 10 (+15) days of teaching compulsory age school children.
     
  4. Thanks Captain Obvious, this clarifies things.
    I hope I will not be JustAnotherNQT for much longer!
