Probably a usual question. Been for 4th interview today. Feedback was my lesson and plan was outstanding as was my subject knowledge of my specialism however I am too enthusiastic about my subject in my application, teaching and interview that it overshadowed my general teaching experiences. I am a primary music specialist and when asked question about would I cover ppa and what subject strengths would I offer I can't see why this is an issue. I was asked about community links and the village has a big music festival which I suggested linking with etc. I answered behavior management, literacy and numeracy planning, differentiation and SEN questions without mentioning music. I got the impression that a small school, 79 on role up to y4 with a teaching head may be cost saving. I am on mps6 and was leadership briefly and never did threshold before taking 4 yrs out. Previous schools have used lack of recent experience as reason for the no even though it's all on my form si they interview me knowing that! I'm only applying for part time posts for personal reasons so there aren't many about and it's getting frustrating. I am doing supply now so at least the recent experience is covered!! A few of us usually chat as candidates and all the experienced teachers are feeling the same and between us we have been in or know of the schools we were turned down at and found that all the jobs have gone to nqts except one which went to a lady being made redundant at nearby school. Am I destined for supply?
