I am beginning to wonder if the whole issue of teacher's job applications is a ploy to stop us from moving on to other schools or progressing.(tongue in check).When you think about workload and the time we spend on school work, how on earth are we going to find the time to fill in one of these repetitive forms in order to move on? This to me is why many of us end up in unhappy teaching situations for years! Why do you have to do a separate application for each school for a teaching job that is going to be the same as the one you are leaving? I have noticed the introduction of quick applications which are a godsend - why aren't more schools doing this? I have 6 jobs saved to apply for, but for each one I have to go through the tedious act of putting in the same details even copying and pasting is long winded.
