I have been to two interviews and each time have been beaten by experienced teachers. I made it through the cut after the lesson observations where as some experienced teachers were sent home (so I am grateful for that). But once it came to the actual interview I was pipped to the post both times by more experienced teachers and the feedback for each were along similar lines, that while I was a good candidate, I am at a disadvantage because I haven't got as much experience as the chosen candidate. I have another interview next week and there are 7 of us! The PA who phoned told me I was the only trainee in the running and that the other 6 are working teachers. Will I ever be picked?! How can I really stand out?
