First question: did you factor in NS increment
Second question: is your uni degree one of the core teaching subjects? E.g. sciences, languages, geography, math etc?

When were you offered and when was the second upper person offered? Look at the economy now. Starting salary takes into account prevailing economic conditions. If youíre not happy with 3.8k, there are many others in line to take your place.

I have agreed to take on an SH position. Would value advice from those who have trodden the path before me - what helped you cope, what pitfalls did you meet and what advice would you give to someone taking on a leadership role for the first time?

Grateful for any advice!

Be prepared for more office politics at the higher level. Learn to read your SLs.

Can provide a bit more context? Home grown? IP or student develop? When does it start? Your background?

Agreed to take on SH position? So you are one now or you have agreed to be groomed to be one?

OP here, am grateful for the help and heartened by the support! I understand it will not be easy.

Iíll be taking it up in my current school, replacing the current SH who is leaving. It is a primarily IP position but it is expected I will also do dual SH duties for another non-IP portfolio (e.g. Pupil Welfare), as the previous SH did. It will be one year internal appointment first starting next year. As for my background, I would be considered an experienced teacher, but I definitely have less than 10 years in the service.

I will take on the internal SH appointment beginning next year.
