I qualified as a teacher in 2004, then spent a couple of years working on supply but didn't secure a position or complete my NQT year. Since then I've been teaching in colleges but I'm wanting to return to work in a primary school. A job has come up in a school I know, I teach their pupils as part of a school links scheme and I have spent a long time writing my letter of application following your tips, thank you! I wondered whether I should make mention of the fact that I am still technically an NQT but with several years teaching experience within my letter. The advert does mention that applications from NQTs are welcome so I wonder if that is what they are looking for. I'm hoping to make myself sound like a better prospect if that makes sense, like I have all the benefits of an NQT (ie cheaper!) but with all this experience under my belt. Thanks.
