https://www.tes.com/articles/newly-qualified-teacher-faqs https://community.tes.com/threads/nqt-do-i-need-to-leave.787892/ Hi there, I am an NQT currently completing my induction year, I have read through the NQT FAQs as above and also the thread linked above as I am in a similar position. I did not make the satisfactory progress in term one and it did not look like I would be in term two either. I contacted my union and similar to what was mentioned in the above thread my school were happy to let me leave at the end of term two but with an interim report being submitted rather than a end of term assessment so I will still have two terms to complete. I would be grateful for the some clarification on the following: -I was under the impression that I can have a break and complete the remaining terms when I feel I am ready/have a secured a role at new school, this could be after having a break or just supply teaching. I was speaking to an RQT at my school who was asking if the terms need to be completed consecutively, however I was under the impression breaks are allowed? -Also there is no limit in which the induction year has to be completed? -NQTs can do supply work up to a maximum of 16 months, however when does supply work become work you can be assessed against, my union said this is once it is classed as long term, what is considered as short term supply and long term supply? -And my final question, given I have not made the satisfactory progress in term one, how would you approach applying to your next school. I would imagine the next school would have access to the existing submitted assessments/reports through your teacher number? And who would you put as your reference, your headteacher/mentor from the first school? Many thanks!
