I recently graduated as an NQT. I was so happy that I finally got my dream career and I have always wanted to teach. I struggled to find a job when I was doing my PGCE and thought that supply work may be a great option for me. This was where I would get some more experience. However, supply has gone slowly and they wanted one reference to be from the schools that I had done my placements in. This took a very long time to get and when I finally did get the reference supply did not come. I am constantly checking for positions and job opportunities. Many schools are looking for experienced teachers. One head teacher said that I did not posses skill, experience and reference, something that I think many NQTs would lack on as their first position. I have worked with children for a few years. I got help from many services and friends to help with personal statements and application forms and how I can make them better. I am trying so hard to sell myself and I know that when a job does come along, I will give 110% to it. I do not know what else I can do to get myself across and sell myself as a teacher. Jobs are hard to find and I am worried, that with all the rejection I have had, I am not worthy or maybe I am not a good teacher. I have been doubting myself for a while. If there is any advice that you can give me, I would be greatful.
