    I have been in recent talks with a Headteacher about a HOY job. The issue is I would not be able to teach my specialism which is RS. Instead I'd be take on history teaching at KS3 and KS4. I've taught KS3 before but never KS4 history. Just wondered if anyone has made the same swap, is it do able?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    I was trained as a History specialist and became head of RS due to a lack of teachers.
    I have now returned to History KS4 and found it a pleasant reversal.
    You have to feel comfortable with the curriculum they want you to teach , also would you have a mentor/history HOD to advise you?

    If you decide to go ahead with the change make sure you have enough time for all the extra planning and preparation needed.
