    We currently have a GTP and "maternity-cover" NQT working in the faculty. Is there anything I can be doing to support them getting a permanent job? I feel very bad that I won't have a job next year for them (I have told them how unlikely it is), when normally we would do what we could to keep them.
  2. Support them in improving their employability when they leave you. That could mean making sure their subject knowledge is supported, especially if they're biologists. Courses such as the RSCs 'Chemistry for non specialists', IoP physics and anything with the Triple Science network. Encourage them to become involved in the wider life of the school, in sport, drama, DofE, science clubs and reflect on those experiences. Get them networking in the area as much as you can. If you have subject meetings in your LA take them and introduce them to others there, same goes for Triple Science Network local groups. For the NQT perhaps encourage them to become involved in examining work.

    Get them involved in other stuff like going on trips and even organising a trip. Try to encourage them to assist with extra curricular stuff especially away from their subject. It makes them look like a more rounded person on their CV and adds to their skill set as well.
