My career (of 10 years) has taken a huge step backwards since having my first child and is now continuing to head in the wrong direction. How can I turn it around? In my previous post I coordinated 2 subjects (one core and one foundation) and I mentored students. Due to my husband's new job we had to relocate at quite short notice and, reluctantly, I had to leave that school. In my new post, I took a slight step back as all the core coordinator roles were already filled. However, I was employed as an outstanding teacher and, after a year, I was put on the outstanding teacher training programme and felt I was beginning to get back on track. Then, happily, I became pregnant. On returning to work after maternity leave in September I am going to be part time, 3 days a week. I had hoped (and, stupidly, assumed) I would be able to return to a job share as a class teacher. However, the Head will only allow me to return as PPA cover teacher. He had spoken about making me an NQT or student mentor but this is no longer going to happen. The teachers who completed the outstanding teacher programme are now KS leaders with TLRs. The Head knows I am unhappy with the situation and is 'looking for a role' for me. We are going to meet about it in September. I'd like to go to him with ideas/a plan to try and get my career moving back in the right direction. Does anyone have any suggestions, please, as to training or roles I could take on? (It's worth mentioning that I've been told I'll never have my own class at this school as long as I'm part time as the Head only wants one teacher per class and no job shares. So I need advice, please, with that in mind). Thank you!
