Social Science NQT with no work !

    HI everyone
    I am an NQT in Norwich in secondary social sciences. I have been for several interviews and lost out to experienced teachers. No matter how hard I prepare and present myself I always seem to be pipped at the post 'we loved you but...','we need a safe pair of hands'. I am so frustrated and disappointed that I hear we are short of teachers but I personally also know several capable NQT's who just cannot find work. We all have families so are unable to relocate. I am thinking of sending my CV to all secondary schools in the Greater Norwich area and seeing what happens. I have registered with several supply agencies but nothing has come up yet. I am also applying for cover supervisor roles as I do need an income and I would be maintaining experience in the classroom. Does anyone have any tips or know of anything coming up ?
