Some background on me. I am finishing a PGCE in Further Education but decided I want to go into secondary. So I’ve been applying to QTS salaried teacher training courses. I initially didn’t get pass the application form stage. So, I changed my form up a bit and then started to get interviews. I did a really good interview yesterday. The panel really liked me and I was answering their questions perfectly. The lesson I felt went really well too and I had a positive feeling about this. I got a call from them saying that unfortunately they were not going to take me on for teacher training. They said my interview was fantastic and they really liked me as s person, thinking I will be a great teacher. However, they said I didn’t really have a big enough presence in the classroom which may be because of me having taught in a college for a long time. I really feel let down and demoralised. The other interviews I knew I wasn’t going to get it because I didn’t feel positive about how I did. This one I actually felt really good about but I still didn’t get it. I really want to teach in a secondary school but how am I supposed to do that when no one is giving me a chance? TL;DR: Did a really good interview, didn’t get it and now feel ****** that I am probably going to end up being unemployed.
