It's not just you - ths happens to lots and lots of people! Some posters have suggested something called - I can't quite remember what - something like Bach's rescue remedies. A sort of herbal calmer-downer. I don't know anything about it myself, so can't recommend it personally. You need to investigate to see if it's right for you or not. Google Rescue remedy, I think. But of course the best way not to be nervous is to be vconfident. And confidence comes from knowing how good you are. Write a list for yourself of all the good things about you as a teacher. I would start with all the many positives from doing supply: Dear Theo- work history too bitty and too much supply- help! Then go to the Welcome thread at the top and read the Interview clickables. There are some tips there that will help you to prepare so that you know what your strengthsare and how to tell them to the panel. You know what you can do well. You would be an asset to any school. Head up and tell them straight what it is about you that is so good! I look forward to reading your next thread called Dear Theo - I got that job! _____________________________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
