Some advice please

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by lcull, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. Hi, just need some advice please. My department is made up of 3 people - one head, 2 NQTs and one of them is a non specialist. We are just about to have a student. Because I have a lot of KS3 the majority of the students lessons will be taking over mine. Is this right? Because I dont feel in any real position to give feedback, and is it ok to reduce my teaching timetable as an NQT to benefit a student? Im not too happy about it but i obviously dont want to make too much of a fuss just incase this is the norm. Im sure it will be good for me to have a student and will look good for meeting standards. Anyone else been a similar boat?

  3. Not enirely sure about this but I am in a larger department and was told that students are never put in with NQTs as it was not allowed. It does seem unfair too on both yourself and the student.
     
  4. I had a student teacher as an NQT, it wasn't a problem. I wasn't their mentor though. That role was given to a member of SMT.

    What will the reduction in your teaching timetable be and over how long a period? Surely at some point this would affect induction if it was a heavy drop? Though saying that I think you can have sizable amounts of sickness leave without it affecting induction so maybe having a student is fine...
