It's virtually impossible to get a permanent job as a primary teacher on the Wirral and in surrounding areas. I've been qualified 3 years and I've been lucky enough to have 3 long term temporary but can't secure permanent work. I have excellent references and always get good feedback from my teaching, I've even been through an Ofsted inspection with great results on my teaching!
Is anyone experienced with teaching applications and that dreaded letter of application? Any help would be much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance

Hi Christine, I can sympathise with your situation, a friend of mine also on the Wirral is in the same situation. All I can recommend is that you register with Tes online, the forums there are full of just the sort of people who can offer you some help and advice. www.tes.co.uk and go to the forums, used to be called staffroom.

GOod luck

If you are willing to travel there are good jobs abroad through teaching, I travelled on a TEFL based qualification and most of the schools where screamin out for fully qualified teachers. Good money too!

That's bad after working for the quals and putting all the effort in when placed. Is remedial teaching on a one to one basis a possibility? At least it will keep your hand in whilst searching. Good Luck.

Thanks everyone they are all possibilities to consider - I do a bit of one on one but going abroad was something I hadn't really even thought about so thanks! I shouldn't really complain, there is a lot of teachers in the Wirral a lot worse off than me - I get 5 days a week supply which is great money but I'm sure you understand it's not quite the same as a permanent position to call your own!!

Im afraid this is what happens when a government pushes for 50% of the population to become graduates.

Its a shame a degree isn't enough to get a good job like it was supposed to be - that's the BS they fed us when we were studying. In those days when it was true you could have a bank manager with a degree in Zoology.

I wonder if I've bumped into you in the staff room Christine raftl I've been doing voluntary work there - starting again tomorrow - year 5, year 3 on Fridays.
