Goodness me, don't be so pedantic!
Of course I meant ARRANGE to have a look around the school...

I'll just have to accept that despite having the skills and experience needed and despite years of hard work, thousands of applications, cash incentives for employers and help from people here, I am unemployable.
the govt will pay the new employer ~£2k from the REACT fund
Just you wait. By October it'll be £1500 for a two week work trial, £1000 for a subsequent offer, and a whopping £5000 for permanent. I have applied for many jobs in the last few weeks that should have a chance of interview. I will be naming and shaming from now on. Check here to see how much of your (the taxpayer's) money is being wasted. It's wrong! Only YOU can combat bigotry and discrimination.
Excuse my ignorance but isn't this open to abuse? I mean, the employer might be better off trying new people every month and being paid handsomly?
It seems you're very happy to throw in discrimination as a reason you haven't got jobs. Have you considered the possibility that maybe there were simply better candidates, who came across better in interview?
On top of that I can't see naming and shaming as the best way to encourage people to hire you. Its bordering on blackmail.
Why do you insist on it being discrimination, at this time there are simply hundreds of candidates for jobs.
What concerns me a bit is that you seem very sure that you do not have anything to learn about interview technique - I did try to ask about it as you implied that you stated up front that you have some problems and I was concerned about the way you come across - trying to help - but you ignored my post.
As you are very sure that you ARE being discriminated against (and I am not saying you are wrong) then have you done anything about it? From my interview training I know that interviewers have to be very careful about things and it would be worth looking into it, surely? Have you had feedback from any interviews?
Have you contacted the Disability Rights Commission to see if they can help?
I can hear that you are VERY low and I can understand it - but we need more info if we are to try and help
It does sounds like your very down, but I also think you are a little paranoid. As many people have pointed out there are LOTS of people who are unemployed and jobs have hundreds of people applying for them. I know it's not nice to hear, but you aren't the only one in this position. And it may be that there are other candidates who are more suited to the job. For those jobs that you think your are guarenteed an interview, you may find that you are not in the right frame of mind to fill in the application form to the best of your ability.
I have to say that it sound like you need a break. I know its hard to do, but for the sake of your health you might want to have a rest for applying for work for a week or two. Or agreeing with Grommit here, have you tried looking at doing some courses? I realise this may not be what you want to do, but it will at least give you a distraction from applying constantly for jobs?
