I am currently in my fourth year of teaching, all of which has been in UKS2. The first 2 years I worked in the State sector, and for the last 2 I have been in an Independent Prep School. I am currently in a dilemma. There has been some restructuring in which a new head and 2 deputies of KS2 have been appointed, all of whom have been recruited internally (all of the candidates were members of the Prep Management Team before their appointment). I have voiced my wish to move up the career ladder as I feel more than ready, and have been told that there may be a Science coordinator role to apply for shortly. I have also asked for a change of year group to allow me to gain experience. I already have quite a lot of frustrations with my place of work - lack of vision, poor behaviour standards, uninspiring leaders to name but a few. I am wondering whether to bite the bullet for the next 12 months if I am appointed as the Science coordinator (it would be good experience and something to put on my CV), or whether to move now and start afresh. I have seen a job where the school is looking for aspiring middle leaders. I have no idea where to go. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
