  1. Hi
    Sorry I missed you today. Unfortunately, induction can only be undertaken once you have achieved QTS. You will not be able to apply for NQT posts in state or independent/private schools. Your best bet is to try and gain a GTP post, achieve QTS then apply got a NQT post. You do not need QTS to work in the private sector so could use your experience to gain a post there. In the state sector, without QTS, it is possible to be employed as an unqualified teacher or instructor.

    I have met many others with this qualification facing the same problem. You need to secure a GTP post in order to gain QTS. It may be possible for you to fast track through that if you can show previous teaching records and work which can be accepted, this is determined by the provider. However the big problem is the shortfall of GTP places. You need to check with local EBITT providers to determine how many places are available and the timescale and process for applications. These are on the TDA website. GTP still only accounts for 10% of ITT and in many places secondary subjects are given priority. Competition is very intense.
