I'm job hunting, particularly for a DHT post in first/primary, and would like your advice/opinions about my chances of being appointed in a DHT role or whether I should go for a parallel move first... A bit of background... 1. Been teaching for 12 years - last 11 at the same school 2. It's a small first school (8 classes) where I've taught Y3/4 , Y1/2 and now Y3; I taught Y5 for my first year and a term in a two-form entry primary 3. ICT Subject Leader for most of that time 4. Have been Curriculum Leader for just over a year overseeing the whole curriculum, particularly ICT, RE, DT, Art, History and Geography which I'm considered SL for 5. Part of my role has been developing the school website which is very successful 6. Just completed NCSL course - Leadership Pathways 7. I would get good references!!!!! Do I have enough experience to be a DHT - not in terms of time but breadth? I feel like I've been at my current school too long but in that time I've had my son and got a promotion so hope that would go for me. It's a good school - results and reputations, staff team as well - so it's been easy (too easy possibly) to stay but I feel a bit trapped at my school and don't get enough leadership opportunities to satisfy me in my current role. I feel like I'm ready for more, but what would a Leadership team looking at applications think????? Looking forward to hearing your (hopefully not too brutal) thoughts!!! Thank you!
