I resigned my post as Headteacher of a Special School at the end of August. This followed a poor OFSTED report – which I felt was unfair and completely inaccurate – but nevertheless I have to take responsibility for.
It’s proving tough to find work of a similar nature, and I’ve decided to suspend my blogging activities and concentrate on finding employment as best I can.
If you are in a position to offer work, or know anyone who can – then please contact me – by leaving a comment below.
I’m a very experienced and highly qualified Special School Teacher, and Headteacher – having led two special schools – in both the maintained and independent special school sector – and have led a 52 week residential special school / children’s home. I’ve specialised in severe learning difficulties, autism and profound learning difficulties throughout my career. I also act as a distance learning tutor on Masters Degree courses at a major UK University – although this is a long way from being a job which could pay the rent !
I’m also a confident, and I hope competent writer, as I think my blog has evidenced over the past 18 months or so – and I’d be happy to consider looking at writing as a career move – and feel I have particular knack for political writing.
I’d also be interested in a move into politics – but I’m not sure how to, or whether I can afford to – I’m a Labour member but have worked with people in all parties over the years – especially school Governors – and pride myself on being able to work with all people.
I live in South Bedforshire – North/Central London is an easy commute – as is the southern end of the midlands, close to the M1.
Despite my pseudonym, I rarely heckle – but I do have strong views – albeit with fairly moderate positions on most issues.
Please leave a comment if you think you can help.
I hope I’ll blog again before long.
