Jobseeking

    Hello,

    I am an English teacher who has been teaching for 3 years in total (at the same school) and am currently covering my HoD's maternity leave. Should I be looking just at a teacher of English job, or should I be going for a Head of Department, given my current experience levels?

    I am looking to relocate from North England down to London. I notice that there are quite a few recruitment agencies in London offering jobs for teachers. Is this a good way to seek a permanent job? Or should I solely be looking in the TES?

    So to summarise, my questions are:
    1) Is it advisable to use a combination of the TES and recruitment agencies, or should I solely use the TES when job seeking?
    2) Should I be looking at a Head of Department job, or simply a Teacher of English?

    I have posted this in the 'Career Clinic' section too but I thought that there might be some budding English teachers out there who may have had similar experiences. I would be grateful of any tales/advice.

    Thanks :)
