I am an NQT who has not secured a job for September after many applications. I am desprate for a job in order to support my family. Iam on jobseekers allowance at the moment. I have signed up with a few agency for supply work, but because of the limit of 18 months, for an NQT this worries me. I am thinking of working as Nursery Nurse as I am a qualified with 4 years expereince working in foundation stage or working as a TA or HLTA as I am qualified for that too and have 3 years experience. My question is if I take any of these position temporarly until when I get my first NQT position, God only knows when, will this move effect my NQT? I will be looking for my first teaching job all the time but need to earn a living too I have kids. sorry this was long , will appreciate your views. Thank you.
