NQT application question...

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by rugby_gal06, May 17, 2011.

  1. I qualified last year and I have been on the hunt for a job ever since.
    I'm sure many of you are aware of the job situation and that there are a severe lack of jobs at the moment, resulting in up to 500 applications for one post! On the advice of some of you on here, I asked for feedback on a recent application, to be told by the school that the reason I was not shortlisted was because I am a supply teacher and this raises questions over my ability as I did not secure a post after qualifying. For the record, this is not because I am a bad teacher, I was graded outstanding on my final teaching practice, there were just very few jobs to apply for by the time I finished my course. I change my application everytime I write a new one to personalise it to the school. and person specification. I have gained extra experience through supply and yet I can still not secure a post or even an interview.
    Any advice on what I should do next?

  2. I have sent you a message.
