Hi all, Looking for ideas/advice/other people’s experiences. I’m an IT teacher, I’ve been teaching for 15 years and have been a HOD for 14 of these years. I deliver IT and creative iMedia courses at KS4 and have a basic understanding of Computing - although this doesn’t come naturally to me and I don’t enjoy it. My degree is BSc (Hons) KeyStage 2/3 with IT so I’m trained to teach primary also. With recent changes in my subject and the exam boards becoming unrealistic (nationally grade 9’s awarded in other subjects to students is 3.89% compared with 0.52% nationally achieving Dist* in my subject. Plus the top grade only being worth 8.5 and not 9, I really can’t win with Prog8), many schools being called in to disrepute with malpractice and plagiarism investigations, the huge marking burden and stress of still being controlled assessment subjects and generally not spending anywhere near enough quality time with my family and fearing for my own mental health and well-being, I’m looking for out but have no idea what to do. I’ve looked at plenty of jobs which interest me but most require a degree in social work. We’ve recently bought a new house and I need to earn around £35k to be able to survive (this is a £10k cut). Any ideas appreciated.
