Dear Theo...Subject knowledge enhancement and RTT

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by anon261, Feb 11, 2011.

  1. Hi Theo,
    I'm just wondering whether it is possible to do both a subject knowledge enhancement course and a return to teaching course? I know that the subject knowledge enhancement is mainly for those who don't have a maths degree, but because mine was x number of years ago, I can't help thinking that this would help my secondary subject knowledge.
    I think I would stand a much better chance of getting a job if i had shown the initiative to do these courses as well as gained some experience.
    PS I've taken into account of what people have said regarding interview feedback and am now wondering whether this HT was truly offering me help, or whether it was just to get me out of the door with something else to focus on...???
    Any advice would be much appreciated!
    Many Thanks

    Sorry - this is a technical question that I cannot answer. If you need to update your secondary teaching of maths, the best thing would be to do supply, I would have thought.
    And Maths supply might be easier to get than some other subjects.
    Yes, you are right that feedback cannot be relied on. Something to shut you up, and stop you sending a solicitor's letter claiming some sort of discrimination or unfair process.
    Best of luck.
