Okay heres my moan... It is just a moan and I am sure I will get over it. I took a short term maternity contract in september. Since takng it I have had 5 interview offers attended 3 and been 2nd choice twice (apparently). The first head told me she would help me find a job by reviewing applications, helping lesson plan etc. and the 2nd head said it was very close run between me and the appointed and that if I found myself on supply at the end of my maternity cover to ring him! I am becoming a little disheartened - I am a good NQT - I work hard, get good obs and am completing induction in an age range I didnt train for! So why cant I secure a post? Am I just not cut out for it. The person I am covering for has decided to return 4 days before the easter break so I will work the remainder of that week and hand over, but she will be paid for easter holidays and I will not! I feel a little grumpy about this - but accept this is her choice! I dont think I am doing anything massively wrong but am becoming a little disheartened. I have even considered going on supply to boost my experience and networks... Or just giving in and choosing another career!
