Hi, Sorry if this is the wrong forum... I'm a trained teacher but due to the hours and stress involved teaching I'm pursuing a TA position. After finally being shortlisted for an interview the other day (from well over 100 applicants for a Level 1 TA job - I had no idea the job market was so bad!), I was not put through for the final round of interview. Now I'm wondering why this was... I took planning, others who went forward did not. I answered group questions well, others did not. I have QTS. Obviously there could be many reasons why they didn't shortlist me but I definitely feel like I was one of the better candidates. The one thing that might have worked against me is that I am a carer for a disabled relative, which would have impacted on my first few days of work but not after. The school were aware of this. I have requested feedback but have heard nothing. Is it worth pursuing it? Do I have a right to feedback (it was offered at the time by the head)? I wouldn't normally be bothered but if the carer factor did affect my chances there obviously is a problem there. Cheers.
