Over the last few months I've been reading various comments that seem to think that there will be additional job oppourtunities posted around Christmas. Do people still think that this is the case? And if so, what makes you think that? I had read that some put it down to schools and college's currently underestimating their staffing needs and that by Christmas they will realise they are understaffed and thus advertise more posts. Personally, I sense a second wave coming and thus another lockdown during Winter. The concept of these additonal posts becoming available in a few months time is the only bit of hope I have left in terms of finding a job as a teacher. I figure that everyone with experience and wider skillsets will already be employed, leaving opportunities for us NQTs who have yet been given the opportunity to get on the teaching ladder, making it easier for us to bag a job. What are your thoughts?
