  • Are schools ageist? Last updated by JANSAM10: 10-Dec-2016

    Hi I am finding it a real struggle to find a teaching assistant job in schools. Whenever I do get interviews the jobs always seem to go to younger applicants. Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me? How do you get schools to value life experience?

    • I currently work at a school. I applied to the same school 3 times for an Admin/Receptionist job. I have a lot of experience in this field and qualifications. I was passed up for much younger girls. This is very unfair.

  • The director of the previous school I worked in doesn't want to prepare recommendation letter Last updated by Isla: 05-Jul-2016

    I was working in one school and I didn't have very good relationship with the director. There was no reason just personal enmity. And at the end I had to leave the school. And she doesn't want to prepare recommendation letter that they ask me to present in other schools. So what? I will not be able to find other job?

    • Go without recommendation letter, as I know it is not a must

  • The reasons to become a teacher! Last updated by Ellie: 21-May-2016

    My mom doesn't want me to go to the Faculty of Education and doesn't understand my desire to work as a teacher. She thinks that it is not a good job and not well-paid at all. How can I convince her?

    • What does your mom want you to study? Sometimes parents are right... I didn't listen to my mom and now I regret.. Teaching is not bad, but you have to be convinced that you want to do it, because it is tough.. The children not always behave well
