    I'm sorry you are feeling down. I totally understand your frustration.
    Just keep applying whenever you can - something will come up.
  3. Thanks Theo.
    Yes just two applications. I know, it could be a lot worse.
    I got feedback from the second school today which has made me feel a bit brighter...
    Thay advised it was an extemely strong application that showed a lot of capability, drive and ambition but they went for candidates with more experience of challenging circumstances (I'm from a very successful outstanding school in a reasonably 'comfortable' area) and pre-existing SLT experience - little I can do to compete with that but I'll know to address those weaknesses in future applications.
    I'll keep an eye out for any of your courses I can attend Theo (don't mind a long train journey but it is my birthday this w/e so going to flake out and 're-group' my thoughts).
