  1. Any advice, support or encouragement welcome. Have been qualified for 6 years, had temporary long term contracts but never a permanent job. Am beginning to think I am too old now (46!) but am getting slightly desperate. I love teaching, I want to teach I just need someone to give me a chance. Had a bad experience at one school (which was resolved and I was absolved, others were then under fire) and worry this is restricting me. HELP........

    Don't worry. Its taken me 5 years to get a permanent job. I didn't enjoy the journey but it was so worth it as I now have my dream job which I would never have been able to do without the different experiences I gained along the way. Don't give up!
