I'm looking for the opinions of anyone involved in recruitment. I am a qualified secondary teacher but have never worked as such - always a violin teacher. I have taught whole class violin etc. but would love to teach full-time in a primary school, but every application I send just get rejected. What can I write on my application forms that will convince a school that I am capable of teaching across the curriculum? I'm thinking maybe I need to get some volunteer experience, but don't have time after my 6 day week around 18 different schools! I also would not be able to afford a pay cut. It really worries me that the reputation of visiting music teachers will always cloud the judgement of those recruiting so that they will always disregard the application before even getting an interview. Help!
