Dear Sage, I completed my PGCE in Jul 2011. Since I have struggled to get through the shortlisting stage of teaching posts I have been applying for since Mar 2011. I am going to have a look at the TES tips for NQTS securing Induction posts, but do you have any advice on my person specification and application in order to get me past such a frustrating stage? Also am I in a similar position to most? I look forward to receiving your valued feedback. Michelle.
