Hi, I qualified in July 2011. Applied for around 30 jobs to receive only 1 interview at a previous placement school and didn't get the job! However, secured a Deputy Manager of a Pre-school job. Not having the best of times, my 3 month probation got extended for pathetic reasons, had a verbal warning a few weeks ago and just really not happy there. Therefore, without work's knowledge, I have began applying for teaching jobs again. Only handed 2 in so far and I already have an interview, words can't describe how happy I am!! Really miss being in a classroom, especially year one!! and would love to get my NQT year sorted once and for all!! Yay!!
