RTT - Returning after 20 years in Training & Development

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by PennyAM, Feb 17, 2011.

    I have recently completed an RTT course - which was very helpful, and confirmed to me that I should be teaching! I have found a fantastic job in a great school, and the position is just what I am looking for. I am a confident teacher of English, but am concerned that my Letter of Application may not be making the most of my experience. I have not taught in school for 20 years, but have been teaching in training and development roles for 13 years, including a commission in the Army. Would it be prudent to speak to the TES Advisers for specific advice on how best to present myself on paper? Also, would I have to start at the bottom of MPS or would there be room to try and negotiate due to experience? Many thanks for any advice which may be forthcoming!
