Back to square one
After school tonight, I went to visit the wee village school ahead of my interview next week. In the course of the conversation I had with the very nice woman who showed me round, I discovered what the role involved. It's not for me :-( I was prepared to travel the daily 20 miles round trip and take a 33% drop in salary but I wouldn't have my own class. It's an RCCT role, the job description didn't mention this. Being an RCCT teacher suits some people but not me. In most schools, permanent teachers take a turn at being the RCCT teacher for a year then go back to being a class teacher with their own class again. This post is just RCCT forever.
Then when I got home I got an email saying that my other application had been unsuccessful. So back to square one. I still have a job until Easter but will keep applying for all permanent posts. Something will turn up. I hope.
