Morning, hope that everyone is well. I'm currently looking to return to mainstream from special ed. I'm applying for DHT jobs, x2 interviews but lost out to internals both times. Do I need to look at AHT or even HoF roles? About me: - 12yrs mainstream, incl. 4yrs HoD & 5yrs AHT (SENCO, Safeguarding & Transition) - 2yrs as Head of T&L + Curriculum (SLT) & 3yrs as Head at a small special school. - Last 2yrs Head of Virtual School at LA. - Consultant SEN Adviser for a MAT for last 1yr. - Ad-hoc lecturer on NASENCO course. - Completed NPQH + MA Ed. Do you think I've been out of the mainstream game for too long to go back in at SLT level. Thanks in advance.
