Hi, Thanks for reading. I have been teaching for just under a decade. I've had wobbly moments but generally really enjoy working in education and get very good feedback from TAs, teachers, SLT and parents. People often ask if I will become a head teacher one day and I don't really know what to say because I'm not sure what progression opportunities there are outside of headship. Has anyone moved from a teaching/deputy head position to something other than head teacher? Can you tell me what your job is like and how you got into it? Or is it worth keeping headship in mind and looking at other opportunities after that? My interest really lies in behaviour management and I have a dream of becoming a free-lance educational consultant. I'd like to offer a variety of focussed 1:1 training over an extended period, and large group 1 or 2 day courses. I don't know how realistic that is or where to start. Do educational consultants exist? How much do they work? How do schools find and employ them? Thanks again for reading. Any advice or experience welcome as I feel a bit clueless at the moment!
