I have been working in my current school for a year as an inclusion manager after a six year stint at my previous school. The role is really interesting and varied and I have learnt loads at the school. However, the commute is rather long and there would be no promotions ever available at the school! The perfect deputy headship has come up in a two form entry school much closer to home where there are actually two deputies...the role is the same as what I am doing now but I have the added bits of 'Deputy'. Two questions...am I being overambitious looking at deputy headships and will being at my school for only 1 year look bad on my application form? I currently have a lot of responsibility at my school and can show impact of the actions I I have made over the last year, however I have only done the job a year and worried that I would look like I am jumping ship and maybe have not enough experience (I was Science leader for 5 years with a big raise in standards and Lit leader for 2 years before moving schools). Any advice would be great!
