Are we inferior teachers?

7th September 2001 at 01:00
AS an NQT I am disgusted by the comments about heads taking on unsatisfactory staff (TES, August 31). My friends and I are all nervous about starting this career but were comforted by the fact that we were selected as the best for the job. Now we face the new school year unsure of whether we are satisfactory or just a fill-in!
