In part 2 part of our 3-part blog series, we answer more questions each candidate regularly asks.
Where can I complete my NQT induction?
Your NQT Induction can be completed in most schools throughout the country. The only schools you can’t complete your induction is within a school that has been graded ‘Inadequate’ by OFSTED.
What type of teaching jobs will I find with The NQT Partnership?
All positions with The NQT Partnership are permanent and direct through the school. There is a rare occasion when our positions are long term opportunities for a year – long contract, but we will make you aware of those in advance.
What if I can’t take time off from my University course on the day of my interview?
Universities will honour the fact that you have a job opportunity. Usually, they may give you a total of 2-3 days leave from your placement to attend an interview. If there is ever an issue with getting out on a specific date or time, we can discuss with our client schools and rearrange on your behalf.
I’m relocating – what support do you offer?
We have supported over 500 NQTs in relocating to London, Manchester and Birmingham and will give you advice and guidance on how to find housing, the best areas to live in, how to manage your finances and most importantly we are able to introduce you to other NQTs we place to help you start your NQT network.
When should I register?
Simply put, the earlier the better will ensure you get the best possible schools and have more of a choice. Our client schools are always keen to lock in the best NQTs as early as possible to avoid missing out. By registering with The NQT Partnership, you can concentrate on completing your teacher training whilst we do the hard work finding the right opportunities for you. Our schools start their September recruitment as early as the November the year before, sometimes earlier than that. Don’t miss out on some of the great opportunities we have.
Get in touch with one of our dedicated consultants to discuss how we can help you find the perfect opportunity for you. Our tailored service, includes an initial telephone conversation to discuss your teaching experiences an in depth discussion about your own teaching philosophy, vision, values and ethos. From there, we ask all potential candidates to send over a copy of their CV and Personal Statement (Support and Guidance is available on this). Once we have this, we can then go out into the market and find an opportunity that fits your requirements.
