Dear Theo...

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Alkeringa, May 24, 2012.

  1. I'm a secondary maths NQT looking for my first school -I followed your advice and that of others on this informative posting. I'm a practicing Catholic and would like to teach if possible in a Catholic school and have applied to 14 Catholic High School and not had 1 interview -any ideas why this may be the case?
  2. Are you in the North West by any chance? I blame certain universities that are training a ridiculous number of maths teachers this year. I'm an experienced maths teacher applying in the North West and although I'm being short listed, I know that each time there are plenty of applicants not being.

    Golly,no, impossible to say without knowing a lot more, and seeing your actual applications.
    So - first advice - e-mail Julia at advice@tes.co.uk - say I said so - and ask about the application review service.
    Also: see if there are any places left on the seminar this Saturday:
    S107. Winning That Teaching Job – Saturday 26th May - Making the best of your application – How to make sure your application gets noticed - How to shine at Interview
    For more information and to register please visit: www.tesweekendworkshop107.eventbrite.co.uk
    This, of course, means paying - most people manage to get the jobs from following, absolutely to the letter - the advice in the Welcomet hread, including the executive summary. But if that hasn't worked for you, then paying may be the way to get a start for the induction year.
    Best wishes
