This time four years ago I had just completed my NQT year on a temporary contract and was contemplating supply teaching as I didn't have another job. After 6 weeks on supply and a few more interviews I obtained a second temporary contract from January until August which quickly became permanent. During this time I have gained a vast amount of experience and I am about to begin a new job on Tuesday as Second in Science. Just to let people know that there's still hope even if you are still seeking a job at this time of year! But I still feel like an NQT starting again. I feel like I've forgotten how to plan lessons over summer and I am getting increasingly nervous for next week!!! Good luck to all those still seeking jobs!
