    In some schools, if you're UPS1 they'll be assumimg if they're paying you the money, they'd expect some sort of responsibility to go with it.
    You say specialist teacher, does that mean not a permanent teacher but some sort of peripatetic or SEN?
    You'll have to hope some other school sees the potential for a part-timer with your experience who could offer the school so much- there are some out there!

    I'm a specialist teacher of SEN, sorry I should have said that.
    Its just frustrating, spending hours filling in app form, touring the school, preparing for interview, half a day off work attending the interview etc. and then to be told I was too experienced. They knew that when I applied!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.
    Sorry to moan, just feeling a little frustrated
  3. I have a similar problem really, am now in my 11th yr of teaching, nexy yr be on my second yr on UPS2 could never ever get another standard class teacher post so pointless going for it. Then of course,anything with a TLR would probably take me over what some DHTs get

    It's really difficult isn't it. I'm having problems getting back into mainstream now; not because of my ability but because of how much I cost to employ.
