Hi Im on UPS1, been doing supply bits for last 3 years inbetween having second child. Had first child in 2007 and left last permanent post as wished to have time at home, plus unhappy there as working with a Teacher to jobshare a class who let children run wild hence when I came in for two days all behaviour was dire again. Spoke to Head about this but said you leave or put up with poor other Teacher. I left. Thats the support I got. But have honestly not regretted the great time i have had with child and now with second and last child. Problem is now I am trying to get into Early Years Teaching. I have not had a class of Foundation Children in previous job before having children (8years - year 3,4,1) but taught in these classes now and then recently. There is a job Id love advertised at the moment, but what chances do Ihave with just bits of teaching EYFS and raising my own young children?? I did go for a job there part time 3 years ago and got an interview but did not get the job, did not fully answer the questions well enough. The school since then went into special measures and now has got into being 'good'I know I could do the job, its ideal for me. I am a very good Teacher, but dont have super great references in Foundation, only one which does not say a lot about planning as only Supply. Should I contact my last Head for a reference from 2007? (He retired a year after I left) Where I initiated a lot of whole school subjects, behaviour, Music, etc but not in Foundation? Or will school consider my raising of a family and only a year out before I went back to doing supply good enough for a possible chance of interview? Specification for job is knowing about skill based curriculum? Any advice here? Also, I looked round the school 3 years ago regarding the previous part time job in Foundation, would it worth looking around it again to show my interest or would they already regard me unsuitable as I did not get the last job? Bottom line is Theo, I have much to offer still as a Teacher, just took time out for a family and wishing to go back to it. But wonder if I have a chance as knowledge of Foundation not understandably that great as had time out of the classroom. (supply has been once every fortnight, usually year one/ Foundation. But that is supply work at the moment - little to go around!) Thanks!
