    Sally- if it was a TA post there should have been a description of a teaching task or something. This is very typical of any TA role. I would give them a ring.

    I just filled in the forms, listed my previous jobs, responsibilities, qualifications, references... over decade of teaching, industry experience (different sectors) prior to that.

    There were no teaching posts advertised... all I can think is that a teacher's parent had a sudden illness and the teacher needs to go PT for a while in order to deal with the matter.p

    Hmm.... is that so? Because id be expecting the teacher salary to go with it. So when is this mysterious interview taking place?

    I'd rather have a TA post, with TA responsibilities, TA hours and Settle for TA wage!

    It's after half term.

    I think any regular wages would be good Sally?

    Yep. The 12.5% rent rise from September has brought us low.

    That sounds like an interview for a teacher not a TA. Very strange.

    I applied for TA post.

    It's all a little confused.

    It is a lovely school.

    I did the interview lesson.

    Then I was interviewed and was informed they aren't sure how many teachers/TA's they need yet, so they'll get in touch.

    I get the feeling that I might have talked myself out of a job...:(

    You might be wrong. Best to stay pessimistic though. That way you might get a pleasant surprise.

    Oh.it's so difficult to get a realistic impression of one's own performance, so let's hope you are top of the list when they get around to decision-making.

    Good luck, and (I suspect) much patience, it sounds as if they're covering their backsides in advance.

    Breakfast & lunch: 2 pieces of toast, tea
    Supper: 2 fish fingers, chips frozen peas, baked beans.

    Heating only on when children get home from school.

    It's cold during the day- I just wear extra layers.

    Sorry to read that. Possibly, during your leisure days until the next application, you could make sticky labels with 'Application for TA post' in large capitals to affix to your forms.
