Added a link to the updated guidance ‘Induction for early career teachers (England)’.
Update to extend the period to 1 September 2021 during which NQT absences related to coronavirus (COVID-19) will not contribute towards the absence limit that would extend statutory induction.
Updated to reflect the new regulations. Absences related to the coronavirus outbreak will not trigger an automatic extension of the induction.
