I'm really getting frustrated about this!!! I've now had 5 interviews for an MFL job, and am still jobless I am a French/German/Chinese trainee teacher, and I state this clearly on my applications. Nowhere on it do I say that I can do Spanish, I say I am willing to try and learn but it should still be crystal clear to schools that I don't do Spanish at the moment. Interview I had yesterday was advertised as "French and German to GCSE with the ability to offer French, German or Spanish to A Level an advantage". I duly applied, as I can do both French/German to A Level plus Chinese to GCSE. Anyway, surprise surprise they ended up giving the job to someone who could do Spanish. If they were definite about wanting Spanish to A Level in the first place, why bother to interview me?! Even if I do learn Spanish over the summer, it's obvious I'm not going to be able to teach it to that standard by September. Sorry for the rant, it's just soooo annoying to travel 3 hours and have to stay overnight for a job it seems I had no chance of getting anyway. Ugh. A disheartened squirlywhirly.
