    Some NQT appointments have an early start so supply work in the school is undertaken in July and the contract runs from August. This allows you to settle into a new school and begin induction early.
    other opportunities- play rangers, sports coaching,playgroups, supervised activities you may find these advertised on the council websites.
    holiday camp work, summer schools in some areas, tuition, hosting overseas students
    language schools tend to give preference to teachers with EFL experience/qualifications
    check with your local university careers service for information and contacts

    I marked GCSE exam papers. Tough work for a few weeks, a few late nights but a nice big cheque at the end. Doing it again this year but I know it is going to be even harder with a full timetable to contend with. Good job I have no life!!!
    I am not sure if it would be too late for you to apply now but it's worth a shot
  3. Hey, I applied for AQA (got told the same thing as you) OCR (heard nothing) and EDEXCEL (got a job) when I was doing my PGCE. I applied for all chemistry as I'm a science teacher and applied for everything in my specialism. I didn't get an allocation last year, but this year I've just accepted my contract. I also applied to office temping agencies and ended up getting a full time job for a few months! Hope that helps x
