For the past few weeks, dear reader, once again you’ve been receiving posts on the jolly old-timer. This is because I actually landed a teaching job and wanted to be able to concentrate on that! I’d applied for this post way back in March, but had no response, even sending them a reminder before we left before England. Of course, then practically, I couldn’t have done the job. The course started in the middle of May, just when I was getting over the operation and before we were off to the UK for our son’s wedding. It was still being advertised when I returned, so I thought give it one more go and leave it, it’s obviously not meant for you.
To my surprise within 24 hours I had a phone call and was interviewed over the phone – horrible as I hate talking in German on the things at the best of times! For some reason I hadn’t sent me certificates with the first application but had now, maybe that was it. Then a formal interview, I needed to convince the boss my English NVQ Assessors qualification would do. It turned out that someone – Andrea was running the course, but had to leave shortly- as in the following Wednesday for another job. So who’s hand was on this ? A God-incidence that I could take over the job from her and she could do it until I was ready? So there I was all set to be a teechur!
