Having successfully managed to get an interview I then received a follow up email saying they "strongly recommend I get some more KS2 experience" before the interview (10 days away!) I fully understand, spent 75% of my many years in secondary so appreciate the need for further, however, such short notice and a full time job and a family to support I may be struggling to get the opportunity to do any before the interview. Obviously this will go against me but I cant afford the time off, and getting a school to let me observe may be difficult. I was going to look for a p/t paid role in the new year, if successful and to gain extra experience - without it, its made me anxious ahead of the interview. Without getting this experience am I unlikely to achieve a place?
