    I am applying for NQTs Maths Secondary job in September. At the same time, my part is expecting Twins in July.
    The pressure of this PGCE course is mounting on me. And I have been told it is going to get tougher in NQTs year. I do not feel like I am ready for all this pressure ahead!!!
    Any advice on how to cope with the situations are warmly welcome!!!!

    Build a support network - your partner is going to need lots of it. Could you apply for part time jobs or job shares?

    Thank you for your reply ! Part time job or job shares might be a great idea . Do you know where I can find out about these post ? The Job Ads all seems to be full time . Thank you for your advice .

    .

    Part-time and job share are like hen's teeth. Often a teacher returns after maternity leave as part time, and another teacher known to the school takes the other part of the job . . .

    So no advert.

    All you can do really is include at the end of the application that you would also be interested in part-time or jobshare work if that were to be available.

    Best wishes

    If you aren't dependent on a full time salary then consider doing supply.

    Hmmmm just seen your other post about visa status - perhaps supply not a great idea.
