Hi, I wanted some advice on whether I should relinquish my position as Head of Department and apply for an internal vacancy that has come up-Director of Teaching and Learning post for the Faculty. The latter reports to the Asst Head for T & L while the former reports to the HoF. The DTL post would involve supporting the HoF and HoD in researching, developing and embedding evidence based approaches to increase attainment in the curriculum and SoLs. Planning and conducting related CPD for Faculty staff. It will also involve working with the other Faculty DTLs to deliver whole school CPD and support SLT in developing and monitoring of the school development plan. I wonder if the DTL post is effectively the old Advanced Skills Teacher route and while grander sounding and paying more with a TLR2c instead of TLR2b allowance, it is not the best route to future Headship. Should I perhaps stick to HoD, aim for HoF and then Asst Head and then Head instead? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks!!
