Job with TLR at a notice to improve school

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by radical_teacher, May 2, 2011.

  1. Hi

    Would you accept a job (Promotion) at a notice to improve school?

    side say yes as it is a chance to progress in the career ladder but the
    other side is thinking the problem,stress and what happen if the school
    fails to improve?
    I like to hear people opinion on this and what experience any one had.

    If you want an easy ride then no.
    If you want the chance to make a difference and be part of turning a school around then go for it.

    The difference between NTI and special measures is the capacity to improve, this means that Ofsted recognised that the leadership of the school had the capability and vision to make the necessary improvements.

    No doubt the TLR appointment will be to help to realise the vision,

    Personally I always prefer a challenge over the easy option, don't underestimate the huge satisfaction of watching a school transform.

    Also don't underestimate the sheer hard work, stress, frustration and exhaustion that go with the territory.

    Only you can really know if you're up for that challenge.
