    I was just wondering, I'm beginning my SCITT this year and staying at home after spending time away at university. However, once I get qualified I'm really looking forward to moving away again. Has anyone got tips on moving away as an NQT?

    Thank you!

    Just apply for NQT jobs where you want to live. I did my PGCE in Sheffield and only applied for jobs in East Sussex as I wanted to live there. If you're flexible about where you want to work you'll find it easier to get a job.

    Best piece of advice I can give you is one step at a time.

    Get your QTS first and then worry about your NQT year.

    (I realise this sounds harsh written down but I mean it in a "you never now what is round the corner sort of way" not in a mean way)

    Good luck with your SCITT course.

    What subject are you training to teach??
