A question for all those teaching in secondary schools. I have been teaching English for the past 20 years and I am currently employed as a Deputy Head in an English department in FE. I am very interested in obtaining QTLS to teach English in secondary schools. (I start the qual in December). Colleagues who now teach in FE from secondary schools are not painting a pretty picture regarding workload and hours; teaching in the holidays and Saturdays etc. An average week for me at the moment is between 40 - 50 hours and workload sees me work most nights of the week. I would like to receive unbiased advice please, as I’m not sure that I am getting a truthful picture. Thank you in advance.
