Hi all, I am a 25 year old French teacher who is in her 4th year of teaching. From the outset as a probationer I have run my own department in a small school in the south west of Scotland. I 'ticked the box' and have been solely responsible for building a successful French department from very scarce foundations. I currently plan all courses, deliver French from S1-S6, devise and evaluate my SIP and I am responsible for choosing/ordering all resources. I now feel ready for the challenge of actually holding the title of HoD and wondered what people thought with regards to how much experience you feel is necessary to apply for a promoted post. Any advice/opinions are welcome. Merci en avance.
