Finally, a place to discuss my career! I sincerly hope someone here can assist me. I work in a secondary school and have done for 6 years. I am teachiing Business Communication as an UQT. (Unqualified teacher) My school is 100% behind me in doing my GTP. I applied a few months ago and haven't heard anything since. There is no way to follow up as to what the status of the application is. I have rand TDA a few times now and always find them very unhelpful. They talk down to me like I am stupid which I find terribly annoying. As you have to choose a provider, I chose the county I live in however, there was no area for writing that I already have my school support to do my GTP. We are ready to go but I haven't even heard if I am going to get an interview. This process seems to be more of a wall than one of encouragement. As 21,000 people have applied for the GTP and there are only 4,100 positions, perhaps they feel they can be dismissive. I do't understand if one already has a providing school, why that isn't enough to start the process. Can someone assist me if they know something I perhaps should be doing that I am not aware of? It's very frustratig after 19 years in seconary education, 8 of which have been in a teaching role, why this is so difficult. Thank you in advance for any assistance anyone can offer...
