Dear Everyone: Agencies?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by trueshellz, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. Hello!
    Hope everyone is enjoying the awesome weather, it was funny at school- they allowed pupils to take off ties and not wear their blazers, I had to bite my tongue a few times not to tell them off.
    I have found myself (again!) starting the new year jobless, my current job finishes in July as I was doing a maternity cover. As a NQT I have half a term left (grrr!).
    So, in the West Midlands, specifically Birmingham: which agency, in your lovely experiences, are the best for cover work and general professionalism etc?
  2. Can't help with agencies but I'm intrigued about your "half a term" left of your NQT.
    As I understand it, only a whole term can be signed off leaving you with one term left.
    Or is secondary different to primary?
  3. My Induction Mentor keeps saying I have half a term left, granted she isnt the best for help. She messed up my Induction in general, maybe I have a term left? But there's something on the Induction reports that say Interim Assessment? Maybe that's it?

    Two points here.
    I am not an expert, in fact I know almost NOWT, about the induction year. So go to the NQT Forum and ask about this half term/one term thing.
    Secondly - please nobody answer this question:
    I'm afraid that it's against TES Terms and Conditions to name a specific agency - even to say that they are lovely!
    TrueShellz - I send you my very best wishes for getting the job to finish your induction. However long it is!
