Hi there, I am reaching the end of my NQT year and there are a few targets that I am still struggling with, so my mentor and headteacher have advised that I resign, as they feel like I am not quite ready for the big bad world of teaching! But this means that I will instead be heading into the big bad world of unemployment and I really do not know what to do! There are TA positions available at my current school (and I have loved it there!) but not sure whether supply teaching would give me better experience and a chance to explore different schools or whether I should take a TA position elsewhere? I want to get a bit more experience and get my confidence back before I complete my NQT year and do the final term. Any advice about what supply teaching is REALLY LIKE or whether I would be safer to stay at the school as a TA for now, would be much appreciated! My main concern about working as a TA at the school is a) the reduction in pay and b) colleagues and parents wondering why I am now a teaching assistant! Thank you.
