Hi all, I am in a bit of a predicament at the moment. I am currently on M6 with a SEN1 and a TLR2 (I am in charge of MFL and PSHE). I am working on my Threshold but have been considering applying for AST (with the support of my HT). I am thinking of doing it on Behaviour Management, as I work in Special education in a EBSD School. I am a bit confused now because if I was to go for AST I would loose my TLR which ultimately would mean I would no longer be HoD but an AST. Financially there would be no reward but a loss of about £800 a year if I went for AST. In terms of career progression, should I go for AST or keep my HoD? What would be more benefitial and open the doors onto SMT more easily (as this is the route I would like to take)? I would be most grateful for your opinions. Many thanks!!
