Dear Theo, I'm at the end of PGCE and I haven't managed to get a job. I am trained to teach secondary music and jobs have been very thin on the ground. I still want to be a teacher but I'm scared that if I spend too much time out of the classroom doing unrelated work that I won't have the confidence to come back to it and that no schools would give my application a chance. I've heard that supply work is a good way of maintaining classroom experience but I've been told to avoid big agencies which may have a bad reputation. What are the best ways that I can use my time to make future applications stronger rather than weaker?
