    Thank you for the good wishes and the flowers [​IMG]
    Just heard from the agency. Unfortunately I didn't get the job from the trial day on Tuesday. My teaching and classroom stuff was fine, but apparently the other person (there on Weds) went "the extra mile", and they thought he would be better at raising attainment.
    Sort of gutted, but as it was over 40 miles away it would have been a very long day in a fairly stressful school (Ofsted due and everyone getting it in the neck).
    Still not heard about the part time position but not holding my breath.
    Back to the drawing board [​IMG]

    So sorry you didn't get it Emmadrg!
    [​IMG] Well done!
    Have my fingers crossed for you! [​IMG]
     
  3. Ah well, I didn't get the one from today. The teacher said I answered the questions extremely well but wanted someone with more recent experience working with an autistic child. As the post, job description etc mentioned nothing about SEN, I think I did quite well with my answers :D
    Bring on next week - 1 interview, as just had to cancel my other interview as the date was misprinted and they clashed!! *Fingers crossed*

  17. Well done on the job!

    I've been following the thread for a few weeks - and have been inspired by some of your positive messages!
    I am a mature NQT who qualified last year, but have yet to get that first elusive post. Have only had five interviews despite applying for well over 100 jobs. BUT, this afternoon I have another interview! The observed lesson was on Monday I felt that it went well, so am keeping my fingers crossed for this afternoon
    Good luck to all the jobseekers out there :)

    Best wishes

  20. Thanks! I felt that it went all right (well, you always think of even better things we could have said afterwards) but they are also interviewing tomorrow so I won't find out until tomorrow evening!
