I currently work in a school that i really enjoy, the staff and pupils are brill!! I am now in my 6th year in teaching and this year I have been applying for head of p.e jobs but with no luck. My head of department is also an assistant head and he is now leaving to become an assistant head at another school. This means that his head of p.e job is avaialble from september. There are three of us in the department who would be up for the top job, however, SLT are pushing us towards doing a three way split where we all become head of p.e each having responsibilities. I dont like this idea as i beleive to be the strongest out of the three of us. I think that SLT are not wanting to upset any of us, or that they dont think any of us could do the job on our own. They have said all three of us have our own strengths and weaknesses. The other two guys already have a a TLR so I would be the only one gaining financially out of it. SLT have said they may advertise the job externally for next year which we can then apply for. They have said we could all apply for it and may the best man win, but if i lost i know i would be gutted for the rest of the year and i would still be in the same postition i am in now. Or, do i accept the three way thing and use this responsibility as a stepping stone for next year. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
