I returned to secondary teaching in 2015 after a two-year career break due to family circumstances. Before that I lectured part-time in Eng Lit for seven years, and before that taught English at KS4 and KS5 for four years. I had previously run a charity English language summer school for seventeen years. Since 2015 I have had three short-term contracts, with the last one ending in Nov 2016. I have good subject knowledge, not a lot of recent classroom experience and last pay scale was MP6. I am in my early fifties. I have put in several applications recently, but I don't seem to get any further interviews. I should be grateful for any advice on my chances of yet making a classroom teacher. Many thanks.
