    I'm considering a change of careers. Could someone please clarify whether
    Primary teaching provides opportunities for progression in the profession and
    how many years would this normally take i.e. taking on TLR responsibilities,
    head of key stage, assistant head etc.


    Also does anyone have any experience of the accelerated headship programme
    and number of years normally taken. Would previous career experience be taken
    into consideration?
    Thank you

    Hold your horses!! get trained first if you can, primary teaching places are hard fought over, especially PGCE. Then, if you can, get a job. There are none at the moment. Then you have to get good at your job, this takes at least 3 years. You then may be considered for a TLR. This level of responsibility will be taking over your life by now. Then you have to do the NPQH, if it still exists. Then you have to get a headteacher job in a nice school.
    Good luck. All in all, about 10 years work!
