Hi everyone. I qualified as a teacher a few years ago and have been working as a HLTA and TA ever since, as well as doing supply work. For the past couple of months I have been working as a TA in a lovely school and have been offered a fixed-term contract. The problem is the salary is quite a bit lower than I'd like (it's a level 1 position) and it doesn't involve any teaching or PPA cover. I've had a great time there but I worry that the longer I leave it, the harder it'll be to secure a teaching post. There are already so many people going for each position. I have spent the last three days filling in job applications for teaching and HLTA positions I would love, but I worry that if I don't accept the offered role, I might still be on supply from Sept. I know jobs are few and far between and there's the chance of six weeks without pay if I don't secure a job in time. Do I keep applying or would you accept the job if you were in my position?
