    I am looking to be promoted from a position as teacher to a position with more pastoral responsibility. Would a Head of House position represent a good promotion in this area? And what TLR should I expect for such a post?

    It depends entirely on the structure of the school. Some schools use the House system as their pastoral structure, many more have Heads of Year.

    One would, however, normally consider a period of apprenticeship as a Deputy or Assistant first. Assistant Head of Year, for example, for two years, before taking responsibility as a Head of Year. I assume that you already have a few years' experience as a Form Tutor under your belt? The chalkface of pastoral!

    As for the TLR - your guess is as good as mine here! Each school will have its own staffing structure with its defined TLR. You could perhaps get a vague idea by leafing through the Jobs section of the TES.

    Best wishes
