    I am seeking advice for a change from curriculum to pastoral.

    I have been a HoD for 14 years and have decided that i would to apply for a HoY post.

    Any suggestions/advice of what i should be covering in my supporting statement. I am well aware the role/responsibility as HoD crosses over into HoY - but any suggestions would be welcomed.

    Many thanks in advance for advice/support.

    Pastoral experience - been a Form Tutor? Helped mentor students?

    Relationships with parents - you'd have had to build them as a HoD.

    Managing people - you've done this with a dept, but now you'll be doing this with a Tutor team.

    Just a couple of thoughts!
