Seeking teaching position within FE Sector

    I was hoping someone might be able to offer some advice.

    I have just completed my PGCE (post compulsory) 16+ qualification and completed my placement within an art and design department. I also have a degree in the arts.

    I have been searching for months for work within this area and have even widend my search to further than I had anticipatetd, but still unfortunately cannot find a suitable position. I have contacted many angencies, sent CV's and personal statements to every possible college and sixth form, but still no luck. I have even applied for TA positions but nothing suitable has come up.

    Does anyone know if I'm missing something out? I look online at every possible website at least once a day and I am really keen to find a teaching position before the start of the academic year. I fear that this is now highly unlikely, but would like to leave no stone unturned.

    Any advice would be most welcomed, thank you.

    Oh dear, how depressing for you!

    Presumably this means the websites of the different local colleges? You could also try doing this:

    You are in a difficult situation because there is not an awful lot of A&D about, nor a lot of 16+ positions in general . . . It looks to me as though you are doing just what you can, I have no other suggestions, I am afraid.

    Although perhaps someone else will come with another idea.

    Best wishes
