Pitfalls for a trainee teacher;Letter
Added to this is the recent recommendation that teachers qualifying after May 1999 require three terms' induction experience, gained within five years. Failure to meet the standards could mean losing qualified teacher status.
If there are to be redundancies following the pay rise, what hope have the newly qualified of securing a position long enough to complete the said three-term induction, always of course assuming that schools are prepared to accept yet another responsibility?
