    There is. It's called 'The NQT Year Thread'. Sorry I can't link it because I'm using the TSR app.

    Hey guys, sorry to interrupt this thread but I was just wondering on a similar note how many weeks you get off for Christmas and Easter and when the course actually ends in summer?

    I'd imagine you'd have similar holidays to official school holidays, so 2 weeks for Xmas/Easter etc. I think you'll probably be spending most of that time doing work though. Check with the uni you've applied to/want to apply to.

    My condolences; 20 teaching days for me. 10 days until year 11s are off my time table.

    Good news today that year 10 tomorrow will be having an exam tomorrow and that they will be having an exam on Tuesday double lesson as well!!!

    Had my first interview today - didn't get the job. Got really good feedback, but they went with someone who'd already done 1 term as an nqt and had specialisms that matched the school's needs. Bit upset, but not too devastated.

    Got another interview lesson tomorrow morning, then a formal interview at my home school direct place in the afternoon. Desperate to get that one, but probably won't find out until Tuesday. Nervous and exhausted and now going to bed!

    Sorry to hear that. You seem you're on track and that the job is around the corner. With the teacher resignation deadline approaching, our chances should increase.

    Haha nothing better than your classes having exams or the teacher asking to take them for a lesson at this stage of the course. Everyone seems to be running on empty now - it's just such an emotional ride on top of all the workload as a student teacher.

    Thanks. Had more interviews today. One was just a lesson and they invited me back for a proper interview on Thursday. The other was for my home training school, but I in no way feel that I'm guaranteed the job. Will find out on Monday afternoon. An anxious weekend ahead!

    One final 5,000 word essay to write. I literally am out. This on top of all the applications is too much. I've decided to just get it over the line - not too fussed about the quality of my essays. I'll take a pass at Honours level.

    Once it's done you'll feel so much better (until the next urgent task rears its head!). My final one was handed in a couple of weeks ago - a truly glorious feeling!

    Apologies. This may seem like a silly question. Are you graded at the end of training,
    good/ outstanding etc? How is it worked out? Is the average?

    Many thanks only a few weeks left to go!!

    Your Uni grade you according to their own criteria I.e satisfactory, good, etc however overall you are given a pass or fail.

    The criteria as we were told, was used to help with references.
