Ciao, A second in dept role has just come up in my new school and am considering applying. Spoke to my deputy head about it and they told me to go for it but that there was a concern about my behaviour management (I also happen to teach in a difficult area and have a lot of difficult classes, many of the more experienced teachers agree and struggle with the same pupils) . I am one of two people (the other being an nqt) with ks5 experience in my dept and have created some really good resources for the dept, which are my two main selling points. However, I made the mistake of telling a colleague I was going for it (they would not have been in competition with me anyway as they have just been promoted themselves) and I am fairly green myself only having completed nqt in summer '17 so my inexperience will count against me. I've already looked up interviews advice but a part of me is thinking of not bothering as they seem to think I'm not 100pc ready.
