As an unemployed NQT who graduated my Primary PGCE in July this year, I'm becoming increasingly worried about my lack of a job. I'm aware that the current cohort will be looking for jobs soon and so there will be even more competition. I haven't been in the classroom since my last teaching placement on my PGCE and I worry that if it comes down to a choice between me and a current PGCE student, they will choose them as they have more recent experience. The amount of supply in my area isn't great so that isn't really an option. I am thinking of contacting the school I volunteered at pre-PGCE and ask if they would let me volunteer for one day a week? I know I won't be getting paid, but at least it would give me some up to date experience in a school that I could mention in interviews. Is it worth doing this or will the Head be put off as I just look too desperate?
