I qualified for my QTS in 2016 for secondary PE. I had spent years working in schools sports and football coaching particularly at primary level and as a TA before taking the chance to teach. Now I live in the south west and love where I live and dont want to move as I also have a small but dream job in football (3 hours a week) my partner is also currently studying in the region too. Now there is so much competition for PE jobs and after several applications without reply it is getting me down, I am working as a cover supervisor in a school as a way of getting in the door and as a better option to supply. On the whole I enjoy the job but also feel it is not why I became a teacher, and the financial implications means I am breaking even after bills petrol ETC. At 28 I am at a point of how long can I wait and keep applying for jobs, I have looked at options to move away also but the option also hosts financial implications. The struggle I feel I am having along with the negativity around the proffession currently puts me in a difficult situation. So do I leave the Career before I have started or plug away and hope?
