Long time lurker here! Love reading what is going on! It has helped me get through this job application malarky, and the advice on here is second to none! On that note, I would love to say thankyou for that advice! Yesterday I was offered a post as a Reception teacher to a class of 20 for my NQT year! The school seems amazing, and I am so happy! I went in not expecting too much to be honest, and by doing this I think it made me more me, not all crazy and babbley! Haha! I was able to talk naturally (babbled slightly), and even had a joke or two with the panel! So its all great! Thanks again for the great advice! And anyone still looking, please do not give up...you will get there, I am absolutely sure of it!
