Hi all, I urgently need input on a situation particularly from anyone based in Devon/South West or with Headteacher/HOD interviewer experience. 45 year old female French teacher located near Exeter. UPS1. Has recently relocated back to the UK after 9 years abroad. Has not taught since Dec 2010. Good CV and references and held position of Head of Year for 2 years prior to leaving profession. 5 years teaching experience in UK. Has done some supply work in Primary abroad. GCSE Spanish but has never taught it. My questions are: 1) in your experience are there an abundance of jobs for French Teachers in the South West? 2) would this person be an attractive candidate if you received their cv (I appreciate you don’t have the full CV-there are no skeletons!) ? 3) faced with the choice of this candidate and a similar candidate with NQT status who would you employ? TIA for any advice/opinions you can give. They are very much appreciated!!
