    I am struggling to believe I am writing this . thought I was destined to be perpetually applying for jobs! The school is a pleasant small (approx 600 students) secondary, which will suit me very well as I find my feet as an NQT. Starts in January, but they will give me some supply work in the meantime. Thanks for all the support I have received on this forum.

    Thanks for all your messages - really appreciated. I hope the fact that I finally got a job will encourage others to keep trying. I had 9 interviews and had been applying for jobs for about a year. I think my age has been against me in some cases (older than some headteachers and usually older than most HODs) ... especially as I am an NQT. Good luck to those still trying to get a post. I am greatly appreciative of this forum - especially at the darkest times of my job search.

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
