So, 2 of my 3 NQT terms completed during 2011 and the final payday of the fixed term contract has come and gone. I would say that I haven't felt nervous in my teaching career since completing my first term. Until now! No income, bleak job prospects, concerning unemployment figures for NQTs, worrying accounts of useless Job Seeking staff- have to say I have never felt so scared. I'm Primary trained and worked at a high school in my most recent post and that was a breeze in comparison to the way I'm feeling at the moment. Over 50 jobs applied for since Sept 2010, only had 1 interview, where got to final 3. In reality, taking the positives results in taking the peess. (yes, a typo.) And supply- in Worcester area, my experience of last year- not a single day and registered with 6 agencies including the LEA ran one. Are you an NQT with nerves jangling for similar reasons?
