    Yes, this can be a problem. Have you read this, by the way:
    End of contract and applying for a post in the UK for September?
    And for general advice on job applications, read what I say here:
    Thinking of going for a new post. Should the app form be submitted in blocks?
    As for sources of information, reading the TES regularly is good, but they are putting less of the stuff on-line than they used to, is my impression. I may be wrong - it may just be the RSS feeds which are fewer.
    Here are the obvious places to have a browse.
    http://www.tda.gov.uk/
    https://www.education.gov.uk/publications
    http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/resources/videos-and-podcasts
    But the best way, perhaps, is just to go to the TES on-line Teacher's Television.

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I shall be doing the Win That Teaching Job seminar on Saturday February 25th, and also the Moving into Headship or SLT seminar on Saturday 18th February

  4. I also find the Guardian education section quite useful. And the Opinion forum here is quite helpful too.
