have been teaching 2 years, love and really enjoy teaching ks3! There is a position free at my school, sadly though its seems like we don’t have the funds at the moment to have anyone fill the job....As a young teacher I am keen to develope and would like to eventually do this job, say in a years time when more money available...and also when I am confident to do it! To try and develope into a ks3 coordinator I am now taking on all the year 7 science and once this is nailed go onto do all the year 8 and so on.....I get the impression that people in my department think I should just do the whole job now (I have been doing abit of year 7 already!).....only problem is I would but I would prefer to learn it over next year and then get paid for it and do a proper job. My boyfriend said I should just have a go at being ks3 coordinator now and either "sink or swim”. I like his thinking but would prefer not to mess up ks3 and do a bad job and instead learn gradually from my HOD over next year -Who also said he would develope me as ks3 co and build up evidence/portfolio with me on it!Any thoughts, ideas on how to progress up to ks3 co would be very helpful!
