TOO much competition, nerves and disappointment: a mix of the three caused almost one in four candidates for permanent teaching posts at state schools on the Costa Blanca to leave the selection process last week.
On day one of the process for more than 16,000 candidates in Valencia Region, 6,000 of them in Alicante Province, an average of 18 per cent signed in but after discovering the subjects of the tests they were to carry out decided to leave.
“Why bother staying if I know I won’t get a 10? I’ve been through the process before and never yet had a subject I could really shine in for my tests,” said Sonia Vilaplana, who aspires to earn a permanent post as an infant school teacher.
The infant school section had the toughest competition, with 53 applicants per available post.
