Hello there I qualified as a teacher in January and started to do supply work straight away. I was called to one school in particular and found myself covering my own subject most days a week. The teacher that I was covering then went on to maternity leave and the school let me take over from her. while she is off. I work in a small department of 3 and the Head for my subject is supportive. I officially started my NQT after the Easter holidays. My main concern is that I feel I don't still have enough responsibility yet. The year 11s and year 10s have finished there Btec course. So the year 11s only come in to revise for different subjects. The year 10s have finished for the year and I have been asked not to start the new unit until September. So I am just filling the gap by extending the unit they have already done. My year 13s have finished and when they do come my mentor has said he wants to mark there, so that is just a free period for me. I share my year 12 class with a more experienced teacher who just tells me what to do with them the day before. I have found myself with a lot of periods. My subject does not require me to teach key stage 3. I have been told that it is normal for things to be quite round about this time. Am I just overthinking things and things will pick up in September? As in September I will have my own year 10 and 11 classes from the start. I just hope that my development does not get effected.
