Already done that, thanks for your "help".

Any other useful advice?

You need to clear the interview first, followed by a contract teaching (6 months or 1 year depending on when you get in) before they deem you suitable to enter the teacher training course (called PGDE).

I didn't clear the interview stage. And yes supply is more than demand these days, especially with the low birth rates and school mergers. Hence to even clear the first stage you need to be the best of the best, as the vacancies available is very little compared to last time.

Now it's supply more than demand.

It's highly competitive these days. New teachers have very good credentials these days.

You may wish to have a conversation with your RO, SSD or your SLs. Sometimes a rotation of RO can be good. Changing a school may not be all bad too. It may be difficult to compare to GEO 5 officers who have no desire to climb as they can be happy where they are. People always say they have no choice, but the fact is always that we have choices. It depends on what actions you want to take to change the status quo. I had a terrible RO once, I had to pull all stops to leave her sphere of influence. Never looked back ever since and I am happier where I am.

In this way, you can also use it as an opportunity to showcase your leadership.

We can do online learning or need to, cut into the June / Dec holidays. Just thinking out loud
Cut all ccas first, those are non-essential programs in my opinion.
