Further to James pointing out my error, I rung the GTCW in order to clarify NQT supply rules. James was of course, right. It is as follows: An NQT in Wales (holding QTS from a Welsh University, and registered with the GTCW), has five years to do supply. This runs from the date of Qualifying, NOT from first day of supply. I qualified in 2009, so I can can do supply until 2014. At this point, I have to have an inductable post. If I fail to get an inductable post, I can apply for an extension to my LEA. Please note, that at this point, my QTS still stands, and I am still entitled to use those letters after my name when applying for jobs etc. It doesn't suddenly disappear. Thanks James for pointing this out -you have made my life a whole lot easier.
