As the title says really; it's a question for those of you on reserve lists. Do you have a 'plan B'? Are you applying for teaching assistant roles or similar? I currently work in a school in admin role. I've seen several teaching assistant posts come up in the the last week but I'm currently undecided whether to apply. I don't want to commit career suicide (assuming I get the role then have to leave with short notice) when I may not have even started! On the one hand I may want to apply for a job there in the future but on the other hand I'd rather be spending a year as a teaching assistant should the reserve place not work out. Crystal ball anyone?
