With over 400,000 teachers working in schools in England and Wales, this practical guide is designed to help these teachers take charge of their careers and put themselves in the driving seat.

Based upon John Howson's popular weeklyTimes Educational Supplementcolumn, this book outlines the possible career options open to teachers who:

  • have just finished their induction year
  • are considering taking on a leadership role
  • are looking to take time out of the classroom
  • want to come back to teaching.

Written in an easily accessible manner, arranged in chapters based on the decisions teachers will make, from after qualifying to retirement, this book answers real questions from the author's column. Providing helpful guidance to teachers at every stage of their career, John Howson reflects the fact that teachers need to take charge of their careers if they are not to risk being left to their fate.
