I have put in 30 applications for different secondary and sixth form jobs and have managed to be invited to eight interviews (another one tomorrow). I know that this is a pretty good ratio by all accounts, but I am wondering what I am doing wrong not to have had a job offer out of this lot. I am losing confidence now and am beginning to wonder whether it is worth persuing my dream of teaching any more. I am an NQT (finished in June). Cynically I am also wondering if I am being invited to interview so that employers can show that they are interviewing a diverse range of candidates (I am in my late 40s and fill in "White - Other" on the equal opportunities forms). I have done a one-2-one session with TES. Any thoughts please?
