I am looking for advice. I am a UK trained teacher but I have recently returned to England from teaching abroad and am finding it very hard to get employed. I have had 6 interviews and it has only been the first one that gave me any kind of feedback about why I didn’t get the job. The others just ignore my requests for feedback. In some cases I have found that they already know who they are going to give the job to before the interview even takes place. My last interview, I thought went well, but then I was told I wasn’t as experienced as the other teacher. I have been teaching for 14 years, have been head of department and head of year. Maybe it’s because I taught iGCSE and IB before I came back to England? And if that is the case I am in a catch 22 position- need experience teaching GCSE and A level to get a job, but need a job to gain the experience. All my confidence is being eroded quickly. I was a very successful teacher for 10 years with my students achieving the top grades in the school (100% A*/A and 90% IBDP level 7) but for some reason I just can’t get a job here. Can anyone give me advice on what to do? How can I make myself more suitable to work in England? How can i solve the catch 22 situation?
