Dear Theo - GTC membership

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by mazjak, Jun 29, 2011.

  1. Do you have to have GTC membership to apply for a job in state schools?

    I left teaching 4 years ago to have a family, and cancelled my GTC membership. Now I am applying for jobs again, the application forms ask if you are a member, so I circled 'no'. Will this put me at a disadvantage in getting an interview? Obviously if I got a job I would rejoin.

    Many thanks

    Why don't you write Pending instead of just circling the No?
    It's true, and looks better.
    Best wishes
