Job interviews for GTP placement

    I'm really stressed out right now and just wondered if anyone else was feeling the same? My uni gives you a place on the course (primary) but you then have to visit and apply to the partnership school. Basically fighting for a placement as there are more students than places!! I had one interview last week, but didn't get the job, I don't think it was the right school for me, but I would rather that school than nothing.
    Now I'm waiting to hear if I've even been short listed for other posts, my GTP dream could already be over! Luckily I also have a PGCE place, but financially I really need to do the GTP. I also feel it would be the best route for me as I have lots of classroom experience (nearly 9 years) and have an education studies degree.
    It's plaguing my every thought at the moment, I think an interview rejection has really knocked my confidence! But onwards and upwards as they say...thanks for reading my very long rant lol..I feel a little better to get that out!!
  2. I know exactly how you feel! It has been all consuming for the past few months, especially the last 4 weeks!
    At least you have a PGCE place, so even though it may not be exactly how you want to do it, you will still get the same end result! [​IMG]
    Try and stay positive. It's not over 'til it's over!

    Hi Caroline!
    Crazy isn't it?! I have another interview lined up now for Monday...but it's in yr6. All my previous experience is in 3-7 including a degree specialism in early years...but hey they short listed me so I'm going to go along and let lady fate decide!
    The post will be for either yr5 or yr6 so a massive step out of my comfort zone..could work out a good thing who knows? How are your interviews going?
