Thinking of working in Wales?

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by James_Williams, May 18, 2011.

  1. If you are training in England, but thinking of working in Wales, please see the information below:

    Induction in wales is similar to England and takes one year. It is accepted in England once successfully completed.
    In Wales there is no 16 month rule for daily supply - it is 5 years and then there is still an option for an LA to extend that time for a further year.
    Induction is directly funded in schools by the GTCW (£3700 over the year) so there is no issue of schools saying that they 'cannot afford' to take on a NQT. The down side is theat the jobs market is much smaller.
    You must have your QTS status confired by the GTCE before the GTCW will record you on their database as eligible for work.

    </font>Registration with the

    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font>Under legislation every person
    who wishes to undertake the work of a qualified teacher in a maintained school
    or non-maintained special school in Wales must be registered with the
    General Teaching Council for Wales (GTCW)
    <u>before</u> they start work.



    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font>In previous years we have had a
    small number of trainee teachers from English teacher training providers who
    come to work in Wales and who therefore need to be registered with the
    GTCW. I am aware that students in England have provisional registration
    status with the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) but it is important
    that your students are made aware that this is <u>NOT</u> transferable
    to the GTCW

    </font>Registration with the GTCW is subject
    to completion and submission of:

    </font>I would be grateful for your
    assistance in highlighting to any students within your institution that, if
    they intend to work in Wales following qualification, they are advised to
    submit their applications for registration in good time.
    This will,
    hopefully, allow sufficient time for the CRB to process the disclosure
    application.

    Given the shortage of teaching posts and the closure of schools in Wales most Taff teachers are probably in England anyway.
    What is next, the rebuilding of Offa's Dyke?
