This is more to rant as use that as therapy more than anything but I am so frustrated and feel completely injusticed here!

I am applying via MANY agencies for a Science Teacher job in time for September this year and still looking/asking/hounding YET last year, last week; I hardly applied at all and got an interview and a job as a Science Teacher like that clicks fingers....yet this year DIDDLY SQUAT!!

I mean what the hell?!
I know i'm technically unqualified as I don't have the teacher training qualification but I DID try, last year and the year before! but guess what.....I was giving the choice of doing that (as I got in to the TT course) or JOB as a Teacher....of course I picked Teaching Job!!

I may not have teacher training (TT) but what I DO HAVE is a Bachelors and a Masters degree in the hard sciences and a handful of years experience in Science teaching!! AS an ACTUAL Science Teacher!

So this year, I didn't bother with even applying for TT Training course and NO JOB!!, NO JOB INTERVIEW!!! NONE!!!!!!

Dear Sir/Madam:
I am writing for the Science Teacher vacancy.
I am interested in your educational institute as a Science Teacher.

I can offer 4 consecutive years of experience in teaching Sciences at KS3 +GCSE double/triple levels.
Successfully handled responsibilities of merit professionally executed, like: coordinating/marking of GCSE coursework; creating, teaching and coordinating a GCSE program and intensely worked with EBD students expelled for violence.

Keeps a cool head, eg: I needed to attend to ~300 anxious prospective students on enrolment day and rationally organized them into segregated queues.

I am also able to create detail-orientated lessons, delivered with raw innovation, passion and potency.
Thank you for reading this, enjoy my curriculum vitæ and visit my LinkedIn profile.

Then hopefully after further consideration perhaps you can ask me more in person, as I would be honoured to meet you.

Sincerely,
Emily BSc (Hons) MSc.
