Advice-Second extension?

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by midget_gem74, Mar 12, 2011.

  1. Hi, I was just wondering if ayone could give me some advice.
    I graduated in 2008 but didn't start supply until Feb 2009 due to the amount of people joining the agency at the same time. My agency is really good, I get regular supply work and am often asked back to schools and told that I do a good job, the children like me, I have a good manner etc etc. Despite this I have only had 2 interviews, and so am yet to start my induction. I've had my letter checked a number of times (including paying the TES service) and told its good, I always act on the advice given about it. I've also been in a number of pools but nothing has comeabout from these. I've been applying in different parts of the country.
    The problem is that my extension is coming to an end in July. Would I be allowed to apply for a second extension? There is one school where I do regular supply and the head has said that if something like a maternity cover somes up he would be happy for me to do it. A TA position is coming up at the school I think (I spotted a resignation letter on the heads desk when we were sorting out supply dates), do you think I would be better off applying for this?
    It is so depressing knowing how I have always wanted to teach, that I must be a good teacher the amount of times I am asked back and yet I am now facing the prospect of having to move out of teaching. My life is on hold at the minute, while I still live at home with my parents and visit my boyfriend at weekends my uni friends are looking at buying their own houses. I try not to let it get me down but evry now and again it hits me.
