I'm due to finish my School Direct training July 2020, I've had a few interviews but been unsuccessful. I've had good feedback but ultimately all have said they went with a candidate with more experience. I am worried that due to corona, I've had limited experience in the classroom and this will hold me back. One of my placement schools contacted me to say they're advertising internally for a maternity cover position from September, and asked if I was interested. I thought that this will give me a years experience but I'll also still be cheap to employ. What are peoples thoughts/experience on taking a maternity cover for your NQT year?
