    Dismiss Notice

Return after suspension

Discussion in 'Welcome lounge and forum help' started by Macca71, Dec 30, 2011.

  1. I qualified as a secondary science/physics teacher in 1994.
    I taught for nearly 10 years at one school taking on various roles including head of year and SENCO for Key Stage 4.
    I then moved to a school for a promotion, unfortunately this didn't turn out well and the upshot of it was that I received a suspension from the GTCE for a year for tampering with a sick note. Not my proudest moment.
    This was in 2005. I retrained and started a second career and have been successfully self employed since this time.
    However, I want to go back to teaching, preferably in the Primary sector perhaps as a science specialist.
    I have re-registered no problem but am wondering am I going to find it difficult to get an interview let alone a job? I assume that I must disclose the suspension in my application to ensure that I cannot be dismissed at a later date for what would be gross misconduct.
    Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks.
