    Thanks for your responses. It is very helpful. Seems if I am reading correctly that it can completely change depending on the school.

    As an NQT, you won't have 'performance management' as such. You will have targets given to you/agreed with mentor to meet during your first year. Your mentor will monitor these. For the next two years, you will have targets relaated to Early Professional Development (E.P.D.) which again, will be monitored by your mentor. After this, performance management starts in your fourth year of teaching.

    Mine started in my second year. NQT year had the targets to pass then after that you are the same as everyone else.
     
  5. Mine started in second year (as did everyone else who I know!). We even had an NQT meeting towards the end of the NQT year to prepare us for the performance management cycle which starts in the second year of teaching.

    I couldn't think of anything worse than having a mentor for four years!

    I am writing from Wales. You obviously don't know any Welsh people.

    Then ask them about EPD. And yes, having a mentor for all those years is a right pain in the ar*se, especially when you're raring to get on with your career.
     
  10. Hi, at our school we are graded using the Ofsted criteria and one of our targets that we have is to get 'good' lesson observations. Not good if we only get a satisfactory especially at the beginning of the year ?
