As yet another job application for my NQT year crashed and burned, I did start to wonder what happens if I don't manage to get a position at all? Does that mean I'm lost to the teaching profession? Do I just keep applying for jobs until I get one, even if it means being unemployed for 6 months? Can I be a supply teacher without completing (or even starting) my NQT year? Questions, questions (there are plenty more I could ask). But does anyone know the answers?
