I completed my PGCE in July and still been unable to secure a teaching role. I've joined 9 different agencies which have all been useless. I've been applying for roles independently and all the job interviews I have managed to get have been through my own efforts without the help of any of the agencies I've signed up with out of desperation of not finding a role. I've had 11 different interviews and beginning to feel low. My feedback tends to be the same thing good planning and behaviour management but not engaging enough. I feel each time I go for interview I become less and less confident as I feel I know I'm not going to get the role. I've started to develop a negative mindset. I want to teach but I'm afraid, sounds dumb but, that's how I feel. My final placement was super hard and I had a really cruel and useless mentor that absolutely disliked me, I stayed strong for the sake of the class but that still has affected my ability to feel able to go on.....:-( I'm drowning in debt and want to start working, I refuse to do supply work as it's inconsistent and I'm a single mum to 2 kids so I want a permanent role. I feel I don't want to do this anymore, that I'm not good enough and each time I'm turned down for a role that maybe I don't have what it takes. I'm suffering with anxiety and losing the will to stay strong and keep trying. I was wondering if I'm better off just being a TA because I know I could get that job easier despite the difference in pay. I just need to be working and I need help/advice please.
