NO ICT POSITION BUTS LOTS AND LOTS OF RECRUITMENT AGENCIES

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by IT Lecturer, Sep 16, 2011.

  1. What a complete con - the government said we need teachers who are specialist in their subjects. So you do an ICT degree and then a ICT PGCE and still no jobs are available.

    Your told you have to pass the NQT year first - but schools do not want NQT they want someone with 5 years experiences. Times are tight we are told by the agencies - hold on.......tilll when the new lot of NQT join the market or until you decide to get another job in another field or even worst have to sign on for Job Seekers allowance

    The government says IT is not important - not a core subject. What a joke - everyone in the real world use IT everyday in the workplace and in their everyday movements.

    plus you can't even get supply, and prove your worth there, as the agencies are flogging unqualified people as cover supervisors - with schools snapping them up, cheap at half the price!

    I have to say though, many many schools would rather take a cheapo NQT than pay out for someone on the top of the upper pay scale.
     
  4. To my mind, if IT does get relegated, we'll see employers across a variety of sectors complaining about the lack of basic computer skills in 5-10 years time.
    I just don't think our classically educated overlords realise it.
