Alison Papenfus At Placements in Education we try to research why we don't manage to help candidates, and why they fail when they get a job. We took a small sample of experienced teachers who have been unable to find long term teaching jobs this year, and this is what we found. 33% of the sample have poor references from recent past employers. 11% of of the sample can not be contacted - they don't respond to phone calls, messages, SMS and email.
