The 16 month rule on supply - so confused!

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by aspire_teach, Aug 15, 2011.

  1. Thank Etak! That makes sense now - so I could do 16 months of supply, perhaps get an extension, and then if I *still* have no permanent job (touch wood this is not the case!) then I could still do things like TA work and tutoring - just no more supply. Do I have this right?
    One more thing: is it possible to complete your induction on a long-term supply basis? Perhaps if I had a term of supply going steady in one school, this might count towards the NQT year?
    Again, apologies if these are stupid/fairly obvious questions!

    It is possible to complete your induction on supply. You could work in three different schools and do a term in each, for example. There is a grey area. If a school takes you on for at least a term, they have to put you through induction. But if they take younon for a month, say to cover for a teacher who is having an operation, and then you end up being there for a term or more, it doesn't count. So long as the school knows it's a term at least, you're OK.
