Dear Theo, I am afraid to say that I am at my witt's end! I am looking for a new job in MFL (French, Spanish and promise of basic Russian as extra-curricular). Initially, I had issues with getting interview, but after following advice on your forum, interviews just keep coming thick amd fast which is great! But.... Had 5 interviews now and I either get the "you're great, but not sufficiently experienced " whilst I have 4 years under my belt in Britian and 4 in France which never seem to count! I am applying for HOD and MPS. Recently, however, my lesson seems to be stumbling block, or at least last two say so. One school hinted that what I did was Satisfactory and the other said that my lesson was barely good! I, however, Am at least in my school known as one of the best practitioners as is the same of all the other schools where I have worked. I am a reflective practitionner and more than willing to take constructive criticism on board, but it seems so difficult to elicit what exactly are the ingredients of this illusive outstanding in 30 mins of interview. Please, Theo, are there any pointers that you can given me? many thanks, A frustrated teacher!
