Hi, I'm an NQT and I currently have a full day out of the classroom every week (half a day as PPA, half a day as NQT time). In a couple of weeks, I'll be going on a course for 2 days. I've been told that this course will form my NQT time for that week, so I won't have my usual day out of the classroom. When I reminded the deputy head that half of my day out is classed as PPA time and questioned her about whether I'll still get this, despite going on a 2-day course, I was told 'no'. The head had apparently said that I wouldn't need my normal non-contact day because I was already going to be out of school for 2 days that week (I haven't yet had chance to speak to the head directly about this). So is this right? Surely I'm still entitled to my PPA time, regardless of whether I'm out on a course or not... Thank you in advance.
