    Hi, just as curiosity, what are your working hours and stress/pressure like now with all the changes with Gove?

    I did a year's cover as a HOD in a school but it was a small school and there were only a few staff in the department, but that was a few years ago.

    I am just curious, what does the work involve nowadays?? I am considering applying for a HOD job, but don't know if i really want all the pressure and work load as I am older now and wanted to enjoy the quality of my life a bit more and just needed a "heads up" as to what the job is like nowadays.

  2. There is a lot of pressure to meet targets!
