part four

Getting on

This last part is about getting on in your career. Few teachers plan their careers but you are the new generation. A fair number of you have had other careers and so come to teaching with a wealth of experience and firm ideas of what you want to do and where you want to go in the profession. Great! I've never had any career plan, and only moved on when I was unhappy or bored - or someone pushed me into it. This has worked brilliantly for me but I've been lucky in getting good breaks and being in the right place at the right time. Others aren't so lucky, so it seems infinitely sensible for all teachers to start to think what they fancy doing in 5, 10, 15 years' time. Then you can use professional development to get to where you want to go.

In Chapter 9 I look at various career options and explain salary implications. Many people think about having children of their own as well as teaching other people's all day, so there's a section on maternity pay and leave. I then look briefly at three of the many options that you could go down that aren't the traditional leadership and management route: being an advanced skills teacher, becoming an educational psychologist or moving to the independent sector. Chapter 10 is concerned with the nitty gritty elements of getting a new job - the application and interview process.
