I've been doing supply teaching since November 2009 and during that time I have secured 2 1 term placements at 2 different school. Unfortunately neither of these contributed to my NQT induction due to financial constraints. I had an interview today and they told me that although I really impressed them I didn't get the job they said not to be downhearted and a school would be lucky to have me on their teaching staff and they invited me to do supply at their school. All I want to do is start my induction. Is being an NQT with a years experience so undesirable? Teaching is all I've ever wanted to do so wont be giving up without a fight but the lack of a job, stability and structure is getting me down. I do enjoy doing supply teaching but really want to take the next step on the career ladder. Has anyone else found it tough securing their first post? Any ideas of things I can do that would make me an irresistable candidate?
