I'm currently a Subject Lead in Computing and looking for another job. Pretty keen to move asap. Not many subject lead/ HoD jobs come up in my subject, I think partly as the departments are often small. I've seen quite a few teaching jobs recently but I am already on UPS3 and with a TLR payment. Obviously if I moved to a straightforward teaching role I would lose the TLR. I'm wondering how many schools would employ a teacher that is taking a step down and also needs to be paid at this level? I keep hearing most schools prefer NQTs as they are cheap. obviously I can apply and see what happens but just wondering if anyone has any ideas of the likelihood of me getting a job at this level?
