    I am a primary teacher living in Australia and after many years and a second child returning to UK. I have been teaching on a job share for the past 3 years in Sydney where the public/state system is very supportive of mothers returning to work. I completed my NQT year in London many years ago but since then been out of UK. Moving to Brighton to get family help with 2 kids, hooray! Been scouring TES and Brighton council sites for ideas of jobs but seem so few roles part time which worries me as I can't commit to full time for a few more years and need/want to work! I know supply is obvious possibility but would love own class. Never worked in private schools but need to be open minded to all possibilities.

    Anyone got any advice?

    Hi, I was in a similar position to you and got very disheartened by all the full-time jobs posted but no part-time, so I emailed every school near me who was advertising a full-time position, said a very tiny bit about myself in the email mentioned the word 'experienced' etc. Out of 40 emails I got one back, and they offered me a part-time job share within 5 minutes of meeting me. It is 10 mins from my house and 2 days a week. The head said she was impressed by my initiative in emailing on the off chance, so it might be worth you doing the same.
