Hello, I am currently a deputy headteacher working full time but am interested in applying for a part time primary education lecturer position at my local university. Is there anyone who has had a similar career change and can advise me on the positives and negatives? Or any university lecturers that can give me some advice really. I want to work part time so I can spend more time with my children and family and really feel teaching is becoming unmanageable. I feel the changes to education and added responsibilities are making me resentful and frustrated, however the teaching part I still really love. Lecturing is something I've thought about over the last year and a part time position has recently been advertised at my local university so I'm in a quandary really whether To apply. It's a lecturer position on the initial teacher training course so I would still be working within education and be able to use my experience within the field. The pay is obviously a little less but to be honest this isn't the deciding factor, I want to get a better quality of life for my family and wonder whether lecturing would give me this? Thank you for any comments.
