Hi, I have been teaching Secondary Art and Design for the past 17 years. After having a really bad experience in my old school I left and considered doing supply and then reassessing my options. I did some supply work in a secondary school and enjoyed it and in January to help boost my finances I got a job as a cover supervisor in a Primary school. I absolutely loved it and began to think going into Primary is what I really wanted to pursue. My dilemma is that the school that I did supply work for (secondary) has offered me a position as a HOD from September. However, the primary school I am currently teaching in has offered to give me some training towards becoming a primary school teacher hopefully from September 2021 (although it's not guaranteed). Obviosuly, as I am currently a cover supervisor the pay is half of what I would be earning in my current role and what I have been offered as a HOD. The question is do I risk a yesr of being paid very poorly to pursue the primary teaching in the future or just take the job I am trained in because it pays well?? Also, can I be sure that if I get a Primarty school teaching job that I would be paid on the same band I am getting now (UPS 1)??? Any advice would be gratefully received, I'm in such a dilemma and time is running out to decide as I will have to let somebody down.
