As if the job of faculty head wasn't impossible enough are there any other authorities who are now appointing faculty heads that don't teach ANY subjects within the faculty??? Latest I've heard(on the grapevine so may have this wrong) is a Modern Languages teacher being appointed faculty head of science! This was despite numerous applicants with vast experience in curriculum head posts applying... I understand that a faculty head role is developing more into a management role but in a fairly small department how can you support the less experienced teachers within the curriculum?!?! For those looking for promotion do you now feel you can start applying for any old PT job?
