Hi all, I was hoping some of you could help shine some light on my situation. I have been a teaching assistant since 2014 but took on a self employed role working with young people with mental health issues in Sept 2019 so I could concentrate on my level 3 supporting teaching and learning in schools course. I have recently applied for 5 teaching assistant jobs been for the interviews but each one I have been rejected for. It has really knocked my confidence so much. I have a lot of experience and a lot of qualifications but it seems when they have called me to tell me I have been unsuccessful it's either been other people's observations have been better or somebody was more experienced. I just wondered if there were any teachers/teaching assistants that could give some advice? Any specific things that are mainly looked at in interviews etc?
