I strongly suspect there is something wrong with my job applications. Recently I applied for about 10 jobs and did not get invited to a single interview. I'm a secondary teacher in Scotland and have been doing supply work for the last 6 years. I am a late entrant to the profession (in my 40's) and am now at the top of the payscale for classroom teachers. Might my age and expensive salary be counting against me? I have spotted some jobs I would like to apply for (Support For Learning) but feel it will be pointless applying for them without firstly getting some advice on improving my application forms. I am qualified to teach Art and Design but would love to move into Learning Support . . . . . before entering teaching I worked for a few years as a classroom assistant in Behaviour and Learning Support and I loved it, but I'm not sure what to say about this. Will it be viewed as relevant and valid experience? I just don't know how to sell myself outside of my subject as I haven't even succeeded at selling myself within my subject. Any help and advice would be great. I just don't know what to do or where to go.
