Hello everyone, I would be most grateful for your help on this. Basically, I am a qualified secondary school teacher (obtained my PGCE at Cambridge) and have several years teaching experience at an independent school. I am also a mum to 3 young children and have been very much immersed in this role for some time! I now feel ready to start applying for jobs, but not necessarily teaching postions. Having been at home for so long, my self-confidence is pretty low and I don't feel quite ready for the chalkface yet. However, I have only just come across a vacancy at a local private school. It's for the role of part-time houseparent, to boarders. I feel this would be a good stepping stone and I feel quite excited at the prospect of working with young people, who happen to be unrelated to me, once again! I also feel that I have lots to offer. If I were to secure the position, I would need to arrange childcare for my own children and, to sound perfectly blunt, I'm not sure if it would be worth my while financially. Please could you give me a rough idea of how much I could expect to be paid for this role. My last school was a day school, so I am quite unfamiliar with the whole boarding scenario. It's part-time, two days and two evenings a week, term-time only (so no holiday pay, at a guess), salary based on experience, etc. etc. Thank you very much indeed.
