I am in my twentieth year of teaching. I originally trained as an RE teacher but over the past few years have moved increasingly towards Geography. I have been at my present school for three years on a rolling one year contract. My school say they are not in a position to offer a full time contract due to funding issues. I am now seeking a new post and have applied for both classroom and subject lead posts. I have made some 35 applications since March 2018 and have secured 25 interviews. In every case I have received excellent feedback, compliments on the sample lesson I have taught - but no appointment. I’m increasingly worried that my age is now working actively against me for classroom posts and the fact that I’m not a Geography subject specialist counts against me in the case of subject lead positions. In fact, I’m getting scared that I may be headed for the scrap heap. Any helpful advice welcomed.
