Advice needed please - What next after LFTM ?

    I really want to take the next step into senior management - Assistant Head to start with. I have completed my LFTM course and need advice of what I should do next.
    There are no gaps in my current school for movement into SMT. No TLR's are offered either, although I have led and managed a department.
    Suggestions for next move would be fantastic please. I am primary trained and have been teaching for 15+ years.
    Thank you in advance for any advice given.

  2. Leading from the middle is an excellent course & worth doing. Have you led core subjects effectively? Have you been in one school 15 years? Have you taught across the age range? Dealt with challenging circumstances? Do you want to be a Deputy next or a Head? If so, what is driving you? Reciprocal questions to answer for yourself. If you want it, can do it then what is stopping you? Go get it!

    Look and apply for jobs in other schools - surely?
  4. Hi Angelface,
    What is it that is holding you back? You seem well qualified and experienced and so I'm curious as to what led you putting this post up.
    Looking forward to finding out more

    Leadership Pathways is a good course, but you should really look for some senior leadership experience first - as previous posts state, moving to find that is usually necessary!
