It sounds like a few people, like me, have made this move. I have worked in two secondary schools in the last four years. I'm interested in what impressions of the system people have compared to working in England. I found it incredibly difficult to break into. It was almost like a closed shop to get a job, although GTCS registration was relatively straightforward. No one seems to be interested in recruiting from England where teaching here is more attractive compared to the regime down south. Strengths: qualifications that match pupil ability, unlike the recent GCSE changes, supportive colleagues, good CPD opportunities, better pay and employment terms, strong unions that are part of the policy process, funding tends to be better as are class sizes for the most part. Weaknesses: there seems to be no accountability at any level, no meaningful inspectorate (no reports for many schools), what is success based on exactly? Some really low expectations, behaviour is an issue in the schools I've been in, and safeguarding would be inadequate without doubt. Some massive blind spots. No evaluation of outcomes. Any thoughts?
