Hi all Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing discrimination when applying for jobs. Every job I have applied for recently (when I 've got past the letter stage) has been given to an NQT. I do supply because frankly I had to resign due to unfair treatment by a school / authority. I've also recently applied for jobs and been told that they had 150 applications from brick layers etc and then found out from someone else they didn't appoint at all. I've attended interviews where an internal candidate is present and they get the job, the rest of us, after being invited for interview, are told we can't have one. I got some interview feedback after 10 or more phone calls chasing someone from SLT who is constantly 'in a meeting' that I did'nt get the job because I did'nt put name badges on the kids. Then found out the successful candidate was related to a previous deputy head of the school. Surely if you meet the person spec you have a right to an interview. Am I right with this? This is all wrong. Please could someone convince me that a) anyone cares and b) something is being done about it. I'm sorry to say that I'm fed up of unfair and disgusting treatment. Any thoughts?
