I'm one of the many excellent teachers, trainees, NQTs who is struggling to find work (temp or permanent, near or far!) and after another interview today where they thought 'I was very good but....' I am now considering my options for September. I qualified in 2010 (secondary). My main problem is what to do for money in the meantime - I honestly don't know how I'm going to manage over the summer without signing on (PLEASE NOOOO!). Does anyone have any bright ideas for alternative positions that I might look for that won't make it look like I've given up on my dream of teaching? All ideas welcome. And to those of you still trying to find work ... keep smiling!
