I consider myself a really organised person. I have a toddler just started pre-school and a supportive husband. I am a secondary teacher and have two roles: I co-ordinate a whole school subject and I help other teachers as a 'Lead' practitioner. My school has sold it as one role which is really cheeky. The coordinator role is my specialism, even though I am a Maths teacher daily. I co-ordinate on school health and pastoral issues. I have also recently gained a qualification in this area. This is where I see a career change. Every day I leave at 7.30am and get home at 5.00pm. I have meetings 4/5 days after school hours. I mark mock papers 3 times a year on mass. I am a good teacher who ranges from RI to Outstanding in silly observations. MY results are Outstanding and SLT wanted me to stay when I raised my worries and discussed moving jobs closer to my home. My son is in childcare in these hours, going to school on a morning. On weekends I plan for 3 hours, sometimes longer - normally at 8pm on a Friday evening so my son doesn't see it. We want a second child and I just cannot see work allowing my to be a mother. I would really like to be a school consultant, work as an educational officer for a charity or advise schools on pastoral issues. I would like to set up my own business when the kids are older. I used to work in the media and I am a really confident speaker to SLT/director level. I don't know where to start but I'm brave enough to leave. What would the advantages and disadvantages be? I've seen people climb the career ladder to SLT it really doesn't appeal to me now.
