Hello, I just wanted to share some good news with fellow NQTs who are doing supply whilst they try to find long term work. I have been applying for teaching jobs for 2 years now, been doing supply for 18 months (had to get extension as I hadn't managed to start induction), and I have applied for 73 teaching jobs during that time. Today I had an interview and got the job! I have worked in the school on supply, and apparently I impressed them. So excited. I have been really disheartened at times and had nearly given up on teaching as a career due to the difficulties in getting a job. I am so glad that I stuck with it. I just wanted to let other NQTs know that there are some success stories out there. Some schools will be on the lookout, and supply can sometimes lead to longer term opportunities.
