Hi! I remember reading on here about November time that someone had met with TheoGriff to get one-to-one help with their CV. How do you go about booking a one-to-one with the one and only TheoGriff? I've followed him very closely on the TES forums for ages, since I became a trainee in 2005. His advice helped me get a job very early on in my training, and have continued to read the advice he gives to others. Last year, my husband and I were due to emigrate, but when that didn't happen, I'd already handed in my notice (very long notice period at my old job!), so I took the opportunity to try something different for a year - not a million miles from teaching, but something that would give me more experience. I'm now running behaviour, social and emotional intervention sessions in a base school and around the city, but my heart lies with teaching, so when my contract ends in 6 weeks, I want to go back to the classroom, armed with new ideas, new confidence, enthusiasm and determination. However, I've been applying for jobs since before Christmas and I'm really struggling - many Heads think (and one even said, with disgust in her voice) I left because I "couldn't cope" with a whole class (despite the fact I work with some incredibly difficult children, and I advise and support teachers, deputies, heads, etc... on behavioural problems) and even though I explain my job, they seem to have a real problem with the fact I left teaching. Yet when I talk to Heads in the schools I work at, they're saying what a positive thing it is that I have such varied experience and it's a shame there's no jobs at their schools. I've sent 8 applications since December for positions I'm more than qualified and experienced to do, but haven't had one interview. This time last year, I sent 3 applications in a few weeks and got 3 interviews... I need help!! I've spoken to Heads about my cv and applications and followed their advice but still nothing. I need to know what to cut out, what to keep, a general overhaul. TheoGriff may be the answer to all my problems..! Any info from anyone would be great! Thank you for reading.
