I have recently completed my NQT Induction year and my temporary one-year contract in the school has come to an end. I'm now looking for work and have registered with at least 5 or 6 supply teaching agencies, but I haven't had any work with them yet. Is it normal for them to be a bit quiet at this time of year, that's the only response I appear to be getting from them. I applied to many of the agencies through advertised teaching jobs which never actually seem to materialise. Is anyone else having this problem?
