    Dear Theo,
    I am an OTT and a secondary teacher that has been doing supply in primary schools around London for more than a year now.
    Yesterday I registered with an agency that just deals with long term/perm posts and I was told that my chances of getting a long term/perm in a primary school are very low, if not impossible as I don't tick the boxes (to be british and UK primary trained) schools look for in a teacher.
    I've been attending CPD courses to show schools how focused I am in all the aspects of primary teaching and have had very good feedbacks from a lot of the schools I went to.
    I am a very committed and passionate teacher but apparently it doesn't seem to be enough to get the long term position I am seeking so much.
    I value your opinion very much, so I would like to thank you in advanced for your advice.
