    my colleague is a young nqt who has worked her way up through the school, TA, then paid training as a graduate. now as an NQT she is now suffering the full force of pre ofsted management jitters. I know that at least three other teachers are making enquiries at another local school that is advertising an April vacancy, I am going to chat to a different school next week. So she is not alone in feeling that the school approach is unacceptable.
    Anyhow, She asked me how would one go about moving to do NQT at a different school. any comments?
    Incidentally, one of our many nqts last year left at Easter and has thrived at a different school. Average classroom teacher stay here seems to be less than 2 years.

    She simply looks for and applies for a suitable post elsewhere and resigns her present post.

    Exactly - she can't just "switch" - she has to apply for another post. Where, of course, "pre-Ofsted jitters" are just as likely to happen.

    Ofsted happens in every school, sooner or later.

    Regarding moving to do NQT at another school - unless its a temporary post (ie maternity cover) that an NQT has undertaken, she can expect to be questioned as to why she left mid way through. And also expect that SLT may be slightly concerned she'd do the same to them...
