Some advice please.... I have been teaching for 9 years and was FS and Y1 coordinator for 3 years until 2008. I left this post due to a bereavement. Since then, I spent a year coordianting Y1,2,3. Then I had a baby and returned to work in 2010. i have been a pt Y1 teacher since then. i would really like to get back into EY, but am afraid that my skills and knowledge will be seen as out of date. i have made 2 applications for posts, and did not even get shortlisted. I feel that my career is going backwards instead of forwards. Does anyone have any advice or had a similar experience? should I resign myself to just being a class teacher again?
