Since May 1999, every Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) has been required to complete a statutory induction period if they wish to teach in a maintained school, including a maintained nursery school, or a non-maintained special school in England. This induction period, of three school terms or equivalent, is undertaken once Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) has been achieved.
