The OCT publishes stats and it looks decent for you. The unemployment rate for your field and qualifications is about 16%. If you are a female teaching in those fields (or a minority), I'd suggest you have a pretty good shot to at least get supply in the first year.Articuno wrote: ↑Sep 20th, 2017 5:18 pmNo french here lol... Is it still difficult to even get on the supply list? I'm not a teacher, just a student considering teaching and I remember looking at this thread earlier during my undergrad and people were struggling just to get on the supply list. Does science fair a little better? (my teachables would be general science, biology, chemistry and physics... I also have enough credits in phys ed. and social sciences that I could do ABQs but IDK if I'd wanna teach those subjects... kinda just wanna teach the sciences).
Also which school boards are best in terms of jobs... I know TDSB is shrinking but how is Halton or Upper Grand or even Peel? My fear is that I won't even get supply work after I graduate lol.......
Ontario College of Teachers 2017 Annual report - "Job outcomes for first-year English-language and French-language teachers resident in Ontario in 2016"
The above is in the aggregate and doesn't account for someone in your situation who is likely well positions to find a position (at least supplying) in year 1 or 2.
My wife on the other hand finally (after a position offered at a school she volunteers at was lost to affirmative action that the TDSB required) is in the next round of interviews at the TDSB for occasional positions and graduated in 2011. We had given up and shes currently back in school to re-educate and shift careers but we will see where this goes. I have another friend who is a male who teaches primary divisions and was hired in year 1 (as supply but gets called every day in Halton) without volunteering which is a tough pill to swallow but understandable.
