    Hi Theo,
    I am currently finishing my NQT year in South Yorkshire. I have chosen not to return to this school as I am moving to London to move in my partner. I am worried about getting a job in London as a lot of the ads at the moment say they would like someone who has inner-city experience. Im worried that as I haven't taught in London before, and have little experience with EAL that I will not get a job. I want to teach foundation stage. Do you know how easy it is to get a job in London? Is it crucial to have inner-city experience? And will I be judged because I am not from the area?
    Thanks for your help.

    Don't worry!
    If you want to work in London, especially Primary and especially EYFS, you will!
    There is a shortage of teachers, and a large influx of reception-age children, so there is demand. They cannot possibly fill all the places with people with inner-city experience, so you have a good chance.
    Look on the websites of the Education Depts of the Local Authorities where you think you might work - they often have jobs there.
    And set up a Job Alert here on the Jobs section of the TES Website.
    Best wishes
