    Hi all
    Im a HoD being made redundant as school scraps music and need a job. Have applied for 7, interviewed for 5 including indie senior school. Two prep schools have not shortlisted me...anyone got suggestions why?
    I have taught in indie before and can do all the extra curricular stuff standing on my head.
    Is it an issue over secondary vs primary trained? How can I overcome this and get shortlisted next time?

    I once found out I wasn't shortlisted because the school had appointed a head of year who taught my subject in the meantime, so as a result the post was no longer available.
    Recently, we had some people apply for a post who were overqualified, so we didn't shortlist (the person had been a headteacher and the post was for a subject teacher, so massive step backward).
    I think I'd look at why you didn't get the five for which you were shortlisted, as that must be more frustrating, to be honest...

    1 I pulled out, didnt like the school
    2 they wanted specific ict programmes which I dont have experience in
    3 I said music too much, if id said performing arts I would have got it
    4 head is psycho, long story
    5 gave it to cheaper nqt

    In all cases the job has gone to someone at least ten grand cheaper than me....now THAT is frustrating
