I long for the day when I don't have to turn to this forum! Some users may recognise my username from around, and I've got a job yet here I am. I have a part time job teaching A-Level Politics on a one year contract, hourly paid. Now that I have gotten to know the college a little bit more, I am becoming increasingly worried that I won't be kept on in a year; not because I'm no good, more because I can tell that my position was only created for a slight increase in demand, and I know that next academic year there are plenty of staff who could take over teaching Politics. I know it seems early to worry about next year, but the thought of being jobless again next September makes me so anxious. It makes me even more sad because I love the college and I love the job. I love teaching Politics. I never thought I could enjoy a job so much. It is just the insecurity getting me down. Politics jobs are scarce. I know that if I end up jobless again then I will not be in the most employable position, and it is not like there is an abundance of Politics jobs to apply for. I worry about my future and what I would teach. Because I'm trying to think about it early, I have all of the year to try and do something to make myself more employable, I just don't know what. An MEd? An MA? Any kind of study? Any kind of work experience? I have no idea. Is there anything that could improve my position?
