Or so you’d like to think!
So what can an ex headteacher do? An ex headteacher who has only ever worked in education and has a Bachelor of Education degree?
So far, it seems, not a lot.
I’m honestly looking for work and am costantly scouring the Internet. I’ve made some.applications too..my issue is that I don’t have any other experience other than teaching. And that I’m an ex headteacher. That really doesn’t help. Who wants an ex headteacher working in the shop or coffee shop? Who wants someone who has made a career of bossing other people around working for them? Even head teachers applying for teaching find it difficult and I’m not applying for teaching jobs.
Also I don’t have recent references – and I’ve taken ill health retirement for an obscure illness so not a good proposition!
