I'm about to complete my NQT year on a maternity contract. I have utterly loved my first year of teaching and have been lucky to be part of a (primary) school that has allowed me to take a full role in its SDP and SEF work. I love my job and I am fascinated by the way the school is run. I hope perhaps one day to be a head ... but that is far in the future! I had an interview today at a wonderful school, one of 3 candidates chosen. They have another person to see tomorrow, and the joint interviewee today was a PGCE student... the thing is the role would involve my being a core subject coordinator. Is it normal for a 2nd year teacher to be offered such a responsibility? I'm completely up for it, don't get me wrong; it's just that it might be slightly odd observing/monitoring much more senior colleagues in that context! I'm wondering if anyone has been in the same boat? How did you go about it? Just to put the whole post in context, I currently work at a primary school, and the position I have applied for is at a single sex indie school (KS1). I hear back later this week - fingers crossed.
