I've applied for a few jobs recently in a different area as my husband and I are planning to move there. However have not heard anything from them and starting to worry about job prospects. I'm currently on MPS3 pay scale, 2nd year of teaching, and concerned schools are generally looking to employ NQTs as they are cheaper, especially with all the cuts and budgets. I'm not feeling ready to take on a HOD post yet, however I have taken on quite a few responsibilities for my second year of teaching, and have written about these in my applications.... Has anyone else had the same experience, how hard is it now for art teachers to move on to different jobs nowadays? We want to get our own house and start a family in the next few years but don't feel confident about moving until I find a secure job. I love teaching and would be miserable doing supply. Any words of advice would be great! Thanks in advance.
