Hi Theo, I'll be a primary NQT in September and I'm getting pretty worried about the fact that I haven't yet secured a job. I know you like numbered questions, so here goes: 1) How does the indy prep job market compare to the state sector? 2) Does this vary a great deal regionally? I'd be particularly interested in what the situation looks like in and around London. 3) I grauduated in 2009 with a 2.1 from a supposedly "prestigious" university in Scotland. I really don't like the sense of entitlement that a lot of people from these kinds of universities have, BUT things are getting desparate! I don't think this university on my record seems to count for much in the state sector - would it in the indy? Or will it just be gazumped by lots of Oxbridge applicants? 4) I am a very sporty person - I played First XI football at university and have played semi-professionally since then. I get the impression that indies love sport. Would this count hugely in my favour? Thank you in advance!
