Another post for a support role at a school I have applied to twice before has been advertised. It is pupil specific this time not general class support. I was not short listed for the previous applications which was disappointing (especially as I had followed Theo's excellent advice) and I am wondering whether I should bother applying for this position or not. I have applied for another post at a different school and again I wasn't shortlisted, I'm beginning to think it's me! I was previously an early years teacher and nursery nurse so I am wondering if that has put schools off maybe, I have been out of the classroom for nearly 5 years but have kept my hand in with volunteering and running parenting groups. I'm not sure what else I can do?
