Hi James, I am an NQT. As of this week I am no longer teaching my class but I am doing PPA cover as a full time role within the same school, As I did not stay in my class until Easter, I have only got one term of my NQT time. The second term (as I did not complete it) and the third term will not qualify for induction. I am unsure on 2 accounts. Do I have 5 years from finishing my PGCE to do my NQT year, or 5 years from starting my NQT induction to complete it (in my case they are fairly synonymous). Secondly, I know that I can only do supply work for 16 months (4 terms) from starting induction to going back to induction. 1. Have I just said that I'll have 1 term and 3 weeks of supply? 2. Have I actually got 2 terms of supply as even though the majority of this term carried on as if I was an NQT, the last 3 weeks will not? 3. Do I have 4 more terms after July to do supply or do I only have 3 or even 2? 4. Could I theoretically not work after July for up to the 5 years but then do induction having not done supply? (I am not suggesting that I think this is a good idea or that I am in any way thinking of it, but I want to understand the implications). 5. When do I have to be doing my induction again by if I continue to teach but not do qualifying work? (I think my calculations make it either Easter 2012 or September 2012) (Just to point out that whatever supply time I have/have not done, I am not regretting my decision to change roles! Thanks for your help.
