I am currently a learning co-ordinator for humanities, which is basically head of Geography and Travel and Tourism. My line manager is going on mat leave and she oversees the EBacc subjects. Her post is being split in two, with one person responsible for Geog and History and the other for MFL and ICT. My line manager has encouraged me to apply. i would really love to do this job but i am absolutely convinced that they would never give it to me. My dept has seen a lot of ups and downs - A LOT. I have been on mat leave twice and results have been all over the place really. They were among the worst in the school this year, despite us throwing absolutely everything we had at the kids. The Principal even recognised our progress throughout the year but then we were all shocked come results day. Anyway, my LM knows all this and she still thinks i should apply. I am so unconfident (that's a word!) that i am really finding it hard to even begin an application letter. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
