Hi there. I'm having a bit of a rough time with my NQT year at the moment and have been informed that I can take a break from my induction to gain 'more experience' which will help me to improve in the long run. I was told today that I could get work as an unqualified teacher. Can anyone explain what exactly this is? I was told I could work as an HLTA, Supply Teacher or unqualified teacher. HLTA and supply I understand but I've never heard of the unqualified teacher in terms of getting a job. Confused!
