I am just about to complete my NQT year, I am so happy. Although I will miss my thursdays mornings NQT time. To those still completeing theres: Make your NQT time count. I wasted a lot. I would really try and work out what you want to do - observe teachers, go on as many courses that you feel are suitable and use them for assessing etc. Also make sure you ask for help as much as possible - I did. I had a great year and was really supported by everyone in school. I was also made d&t co-ordinator and climate change officer during the year so I must be doing something right!! Just wanted to say there is light at the end of tunnel - stick with it everyone and Get the Help and Support you need!
