    You have no limit. (Although you may not have a chance at a job if you have no recent relevant experience)
    DO have a limit on the amount of supply you can do however without
    having completed induction/your NQT year. That is 16 months from the
    first days supply no matter how much/little you have done. LAs usually
    grant 12 months extension after this though x
  3. Hi
    As stated, there is no limit currentrly to starting induction, only a limit to the amount of supply (16 months from the first dayt of supply).
  4. Thanks to all
  5. Hi
    I know thatr it can be tough - the tests do sometimes trip people up and if you are in a rut then you may well benefit from a break, perhaps also talking to some maths specialists about the areas you find difficult.
    The university cxannot recommend you for QTS unless and until you pass all three tests. There is no time limit that I am aware of for passing, but cleraly the sooner you do, the sooner the uni can recommend QTS and the sooner you can start induction once you get a post.

    As the Govt. plan to limit the number of times candidates can take the test for future intakes to ITT you would be advised not to leave it for a year as you may find the new regulation could apply to you.
  7. Hi James,
    I have a question. When you finish your PGCE and you need to do the induction year what happends if you land a p/time job for that year ?
    At the end of it do you have QTS? Or you must have worked full time?

    Your QTS is awarded when your PGCE provided is happy you've met the standard. QTS is not the same thing as having completed induction.
    Induction is based on a full year of teaching. If you have a part time job, the periods are calculated pro-rata.
    So if your job is a 50% one, you'll need to do it for 2 years to complete induction.
  9. It is as Paul stated. Part time is calculated pro-rata.
