Just thinking. When I first qualified (a long time ago), you were extremely lucky to get a position which offered you any A level teaching as it would have all been taken by those teachers already serving. It was considered a small haven of tranquility and cerebral stimulation amidst the hours spent with the nose pickers. But I sometimes get the impression that possibly there are fewer teachers prepared to teach to that level nowadays. It's been sometime since I taught in the UK, have I got this all wrong? (I am asking about post-GCSE courses where things get a little less trivial.).
