Hi, I just wondered if anyone had any experience changing their main subject as a secondary teacher, I am currently dance but with lack of jobs thinking about geography (have an a-level) or even maths. I'm currently on maternity so cant really do anything until September, but I also need to get a new job for then too. Do you think many schools would take an experienced teacher/ hod who would be willing to take a pay cut to get more experience and support them to retrain. I have a little experience in teaching the subject to add. I know I wouldn't be able to compete with the subject specialists initially, but surely my experience as an outstanding teacher must count for something, and being happy to take a pay cut would help.
