I'm a trainee secondary school music teacher a few days from completing what has been a very difficult PGCE year. My university has awarded me an outstanding grade for my efforts this year, which I am delighted about. But for some reason I am really struggling to get a job. To the point where I feel like getting a job as a teacher is dwindling away. I have a mortgage and a young child so I am not in a position to be unemployed for very long. I have applied to every job that has come up within an hour of where I live, part or full time. I am yet to have an interview. The closest I got was being invited to an interview, to then be told that the vacancy had been withdrawn the day before. I am seriously worried that I'm going to have to go back to the jobs I had before going in to teaching. I'm worried that the whole year is going to become a waste. I've been told that supply is my best option, but whenever I research the possibility, all I get is horror stories about how supply teachers don't earn very much money, and are often mistreated. I have to ensure I can pay my mortgage! I don't know what to do next, or even where I'm going wrong. I haven't even had anything from the cover supervisor or TA jobs I have been applying for. Has anyone got any advice?
