Hi Theo Well got shortlisted for a fab job at an indy school and thought everything went really well. Lost out due to lack of A level experience (it was an HOD job which I already am but this was better!) I have taught in an 11-16 school since qualifying and this is always my problem when wanting to move on. How can I get A level experience? Do I just have to become a teacher in a school that offers it for the experience. Can I be an examiner without actually teaching it.....I feel trapped! On the plus side I had fantastic feedback from the interview and that was the only thing that let me down...the successful candidate was an A level examiner.
