I've been tracking what people are doing after three years in teaching in Lambeth. The range really is quite amazing! Yes, there are some who have left teaching, gone travelling or are on maternity leave but there are also plenty who are now in leadership roles. Many have had trainee teachers working with them and some act as induction tutors to newly qualified teachers. In primary, some have responsibility for fairly small areas such as PSHE, others are already maths co-ordinators, but most are in charge of ICT in the school. One or two are on the management team and are key stage co-ordinators. Secondary teachers have a similarly amazing profile of rapid promotion. Some are second in charge of their department and a few are already heads of department. For instance, Asma is head of the seven-strong English department. One guy, Nick, was a NQT in 1999-2000, became head of history in his second year, then moved to another school to become a head of house and head of history and has just been appointed assistant headteacher after just four years of being in the profession.Wow!
