Your NQT induction lasts for a year, unless you opt to take on a role that is part-time and it is pro-rated.
Induction opportunities could consist of:
- A permanent position in one of the accepted education establishments
- A year's temporary contract
- Supply teaching in a long-term contract, a minimum of a term at a time.
Technically you can do your NQT induction year, a term at a time at three diferent schools or for example two terms at one school and one term at another school.
NQT Example 1: Jo is a supply teacher and his supply teaching agency manages to find him a 2 tem contract at a Birmingham school in October.
The first term has already started so Jo starts his induction year in the second term, completing one term.
After this contract the agency offers him another term's contract at a school in Coventry and Jo completes one more term of his induction. After the summer holidays Jo secures himself a permanent job starting in September and he completes his third term of his induction just before Christmas.
NQT Example 2: Sienna secures herself a permanent job at a school in Leicester, she starts her induction year in september but at half term decides to hand in her notice because she is not happy with her school, she leaves at Christmas having completed one term of induction.
Sienna then works for an agency doing day-to-day supply teaching from December. She impresses one school in Hinckley who asks her to stay on teaching and in the summer term she manages to do another term.
The school ask her again to stay on with them in September and Sienna manages to complete another term and therefore her induction year.
