Fast track snubs proven leader
When I applied, I was told that I was ineligible because my degree result - something I scraped as an immature youth more than 20 years previously - wasn't good enough. None of my subsequent experience or skills, it seemed, could offset it.
I am now progressing through on-the-job training on the graduate training programme and enjoying my hands-on experience of teaching real children in a real classroom However, I can't help wondering whether this, too, will get discounted.
