Do i-teachers have any permanent positions in teaching assistant rather than contract? Thankyou.
Not really no. From my experiences and understanding, you're simply an expendable asset used to fill vacancies or company criteria! Honestly, you're better off applying directly to educational institutions if you're looking to be employed permanently.
The most challenging part of the role, as with any new role, is just the amount of information that you have got to learn in order to be as successful as you can be. However, everybody is really helpful and always willing to lend you a hand.
There are many different routes into teaching other than the PGCE that a lot of our schools will actually offer such as SCITT programmes. I would say that the most important aspect of your profile for getting a teaching position is the experience you have gained. You will give yourself the best possible chance of gaining a job teaching if you have exposed yourself to different positions where you are working with and supporting young people.
