Hi, I am an NQT that is Primary trained but most of my experience is Reception- Year 3. In the past year I have applied for over 50 jobs and not got a single interview. I always visit the school and appear interested and ask questions and spend lots of time on my forms but I never get an interview. I just have a few questions. 1) I successfully covered a class for 1 and half terms but as it was sickness cover that kept getting extended so I didnt start NQT induction. During this time I did all 28 reports,parents evening, extra curricular activities, supervised/mentored a BTEC student and had a successful Ofsted inspection. How do I convey my experience while still stating I have 3 induction terms to do? 2) All LA forms have a box for further information to support applications in the form, I am never sure whether to do a cover letter as well. If so, what information do I put where and how long should my cover letter be? 3) I am not sure which referees to put down on my application form as there are 2 referee spaces. I have my PGCE tutor, HT for long term supply school and my supply agent. 4) I am dyslexic (another reason I am so worried about forms) do I state this or leave it to be disclosed at interview? 5) Due to a family bereavement it took me 2 years to do my PGCE (did a placement the following academic year) and I always write PGCE 2008-2010, will this look odd when HT's read it, coupled with the fact I have now been on supply over a year? Sorry for all the questions I am at my wits end. Thanks so much!
