Dear Theo

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by helena_roxanelu, Apr 13, 2012.

  1. I hope you can help me with information about a future job. I am from Romania and have QTS from March 2011. I meet the requirements for employment in maintained schools and non-maintained schools in England and I am exempted from the requirements to serve a statutory induction period. I do not want to waste the time anymore with small jobs so I decided to find a job in teaching field. The all CV and cover letters I have sent till now to the agencies and to the schools from my area did not come back with any response. Even I express my desire to volunteer in any school from west London. If you could help me with information about the steps I should follow to make the right moves so I can achieve and solve my main problems. Thank you!

    Hullo there!
    Well done on getting QTS.
    Now it seems to me, from what you say, that you are sending unsolicited applications to schools.
    It doesn't work like that in England!
    You have to find an advertisement for a job that you could do, then apply specifically for that job.
    How do you find a job advertisement? The best thing to do is to go and buy a copy of the TES from your newsagent, and then sit down this evening and have a good read! You can also look on line here:
    But I think that as a beginner, looking in the paper would be best.
    You then need to read my advice on how to write an effective job application; it is all inside the Welcome thread at the top of this page.
    Hope this helps!
    Best wishes
