Hello, I've been working in state for 2 years now and am trying to get into the private sector (I was privately educated). I feel very much like I'm at a major disadvantage when applying for jobs because I've not been in a private school as a teacher yet. There don't seem to be many jobs about either. If I want to move for September I have to hand my notice in by the end of May. Can I expect to see a surge of indy school jobs before then? I'm not sure what the yearly timetable is like, and am feeling severely downhearted about my job search... Lily.
