Hya, I graduated from uni in May & thought I would get a job straight away but I'm finiding it much more difficult than I imagined.
The thing is my degree is in Geography, my plan was to do a PGCE straight after & become a teacher. But after 3yrs of my degree & experience of working in a secondary school, Im unsure whether I actually want to teach Geography as a subject now & wonder if I would prefer to become a Primary school teacher.
So the plan was... to have a break from education, get a job in a primary school, which will hopefully confirm things for me & give me plenty of experience for when I decide to either apply to do a PGCE or GTP.
However its not been that simple, Ive applied to every primary school vacancy in South Yorkshire & had no luck, Ive applied for teaching assistant jobs, admin & office work, but it seems they all require experience. The majority also have really rubbish salarys which are pro-rata' and not all are full time.
Its now getting closer to September and there are less school posts becoming available, so I need a back up plan.
If I really cant find a job working within a primary school or young children, then I will just take any full time job with good pay. I will then try get some voluntary hours in and keep applying.
So does anybody know of anycall centre jobs available? Id prefer not to go to Ventura & I can't find any info to apply for the Ikea call centre or Royal Mail.
This is really now the position I thought i'd find myself in after all these years in education and debt ive got from uni.
