I didn't want to read and run. The jobs market for teachers and for any job at the moment really, is dire. Have you considered doing voluntary work in a school, or doing supply teaching? This is a good way to get your face out there and get your foot in the door early if any jobs happen to come up. I completed my NQT year at two schools - 2 terms maternity cover, and then a temporary year long contract. It took me a year in between the first 2 terms to find a job to complete my NQT year in, so it wasn't ideal, but I did supply in between which helped for keeping my classroom knowledge etc up-to-date. You may also find that heads may be willing to write a reference referring directly to their experience of you as a teacher rather than as a student teacher then, which may help. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
