I've been applying for jobs and getting zero! It takes me ages to do my applications, I had one checked using the Tes service, and yet nothing! I've been on daily supply since 2009 with a few contracts thrown in! Since 2010, I've only had daily supply and a 8 week sickness cover. I've started applying this year and nothing. Is it because I've been on supply and left my NQT year early. It's so frustrating as supply had actually strengthen my knowledge and skills and yet it's not helping me get a job. if I had known supply would be viewed so negatively, I would have taken some of the opportunities presented in the first year of supply. I've reached an epiphany and decided teaching may not be for me: kid are getting harder: no more statements so crazy kids will run amok: do we actually teach nowadays or just shout. Personally people who want an education will get one regardless of teachers. How many other supply teachers are just going to jack it all in?
