If you are expected to teach a regular timetable and carry out all the duties of a teacher then no, you cannot teach for a year with no NQT allowances. Any job that lasts at least one term in length (full time or part time) which is a teaching job with a regular timetable teaching regular classes and carrying out the duties of a teacher must provide induction and you must have the allowances as set out oin the NQT guidance documentation. The school should register the NQT with the LA, but, if you have done this work and you were not registered the LA will not backdate the induction time. If the school refuses to privide NQT time that is illegal and you should contact the LA who can direct the school to provide the NQT time (you should also get PPA time and together this adds up to a 19% reduction in your teaching timetable.

I have recently qualified as a teacher (PGCE). Upon enquiring about a vacancy at a school (3 terms maternity cover) I was told that I was more than welcome to apply as an NQT, but that they could not support any NQT time.
Hi I missed the follow up to the question which gave a little more detail. If the school cannot support induction fully which means providing a mentor, providing the NQT time and completing the paperwork on all the assessment points then it is not suitable for a NQT and they cannot employ you. There is no choice about registering and supporting a NQT if a post lasts for at least one term - it is a legal requirement. James
Just thought I would mention that during my PGCE at the end of the course it was pointed out that Academies have no legal obligation to provide induction and can employ non QTS staff as well. So it is possible that an Academy could employ someone who hasn't completed induction on a full time contract and not provide any NQT support.
