No, you won’t. Your process may continue on return to the teaching post and extend to allow completion of the required elements of Strand A and Strand B.
If you are unable to return to your position, and therefore haven’t fully completed Strand A (school-based) by the end of the contract/academic year, you may bank the time and complete the balance at a future date. As Strand B can be completed online, it is anticipated that all NQTs will have completed StrandaB. Please submit your fully completed Form D for the 2021/2022 academic year, highlighting the time/elements completed up to the end of your contract/the academic year. This will allow the Council to bank the time and elements you completed. It is essential that your PST sign and date your Form D so as to verify the time/elements you have completed. You may then re-apply for Droichead in the future and complete the balance of time/outstanding elements of Strand A or Strand B.
