Dear all, I would really appreciate if someone could provide me with some information that could help me with my current situation. This is my second year as a Spanish Language Assistant teaching "Spanish Conversation" in an Independent School, here, in England. I studied both my five year degree course in English Literature and Linguistics (equivalent to BA Honours 2:1) and my postgraduate course in education (equivalent to PGCE) in Spain. Determined to become a teacher in the UK, I then got my QTS validated by the GTC for England in 2008. I have been applying for a number of vacancies as teacher of Spanish here in England, but I am not sure wether I should be applying as an NQT or QT. I emailed the TDA's Induction team to ask them about my situation and this was their answer: "A teacher from the EEA who has applied successfully to the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) for QTS, or, a teacher from the EEA who has declared successfully to the GTCE to work in England on a temporary basis." Therefore if you meet the criteria above then you will be exempt from induction in England". The problem is that I feel I need that Induction Year to get some further experience within the British Education system. Also, I have the feeling that schools are not interested in someone holding a QTS Certificate but not having completed his/her probationary year. Any information will be greatly valued, Thank you.
