NQT year

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by sheelers, May 2, 2011.

  1. I was just wondering could anyone help me on this topic. I trained in London last year and I moved back to Ireland after I finished the PGCE. Im lucky that I have work this year in Irelandas I had Gaelic exams to do i could not do my NQt year. Next year things look bleak at home so am going to move back over to London.

    Does anyone know if I can do my NQT year in London next year? I presumed you could but then I was talking to someone who said that if you don't do it straight away the year after you finish then you cant do it there at all...

    Would love to get some opinions or even be pointed in the right direction of who to ask.
  2. The someone you are talking to is talking complete and utter rubbish.

    Check with the Irish registration for teachers it may be that they recognise your year's teaching towards probationary year- if so then you do not have to serve induction in England. This would be a big advantage as you are not then restricted to looking for induction posts. induction places are hard to find even in London
  4. If you get a post in London (or elsewhere) then you would have to complete induction. There is no time limit to starting or completing and a break between training and starting is not an issue either.

    There is no time limit on when you do induction, though with a big gap you might find it hard for a school to take you! 1 year should be fine, good luck with the job hunt!
