Hello, I am currently doing my Teacher Training through the Salaried School Direct route and training in Primary. I’ve only ever worked in state schools (worked for 3 years prior to ITT, mainly teaching French as a TA/HLTA) but I’m really drawn to working in the independent sector as I have a specialism in MFL (French and Spanish degree). I feel that my Languages will be utilised more in an independent prep school as they seem to value specialisms and actually give you time to teach it, than in a state primary as a class teacher. Any thoughts on this? I’ve applied for a job in a small prep school where the Head told me on my visit that they are looking to introduce Spanish to the curriculum. I feel like it’s made for me but am I making the right decision? What is progression like in independent schools with a specialist subject? Will my skills be more valued and utilised in the independent sector? Would I be on a higher salary as MFL lead in a state primary school than HOD in independent prep? Many thanks in advance.
