Hi all, Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place. I’m currently employed in the private education sector within the MOD (if that makes sense) teaching young adults electrical science and engineering. I have been in my current post for about 5 years, and although I really enjoy it, I feel it is time for a new audience and location. I have applied for several positions to the ME but to no avail. Most posts that I have applied for seem to ask for experience in delivering the UK curriculum, (even the private ones) hence, I think, that is the problem. How do I go about this? If I apply for an interim post at a secondary school, obviously I will be an NQT and that will mean (I’m sure) a drop in my salary and besides, an NQT is in the same position (catch 22). I’m in my 40’s got into teaching late (ex-forces) but I have completed all quals (PGCE, QTS etc). I have also taught for a short time in a university. Subject is ICT, surely that would be enough? Anyone actually jumped from private school to secondary in the ME or similar? I think that I would also consider Europe. I thank you in advance.
