Hi dawnylou, I did the foundation degree and qualified as a teacher 6 years ago. I started supplying in my 'TA school' as soon as I'd qualified and luckily a job came up there after 3 months. 6 years on I'm still there and still love it! Although teaching positions are sought after, there are still lots out there! Your experiences as a TA will enhance your application as you will have lots of additional experience to draw on. I'd say go for it! Yes, the final year was tough (my hubby and son were counting down the days!!) But I've not regretted a single moment!
