I completed my PGCE in the summer and have been looking for work ever since. I've applied for every teaching post going and have had a fair few interviews( all unsuccessful). Things are getting desperate now though and I've started applying for other roles in schools just so I don't get totally out of touch. There are a lot of jobs such as Learning mentor, Head of Year, Pastoral Manager, Cover Supervisor etc, etc, I have applied for loads of these but have not even got a reply to say I was unsuccessful, let alone an interview. My question is: do schools ignore applications from qualified teachers if the role is an unqualified one? Is there really such a thing as being over-qualified? I'm at the end of the proverbial tether now as far as job applications go. Anyone have any pearls of wisdom?
