What is your advice about? Getting your first job

  1. Join an NQT pool for an area you would like to teach in.
  2. Since you only need to do one application form, invest time in writing your statement and get a second opinion from an experienced teacher.
  3. Be aware that a good application will receive many responses and schools will be keen to interview you so you can be selective about which you choose to attend.
  4. Don’t worry if you don’t get the first one. There will be PLENTY more opportunities.
  5. Get your application in early so you can be even more picky and selective about where you work.
