Learn from bitter experience points
As a mature 33-year-old entrant last September with 12 years of relevant experience I refused several job offers when told I would get just one experience point.
Eventually I accepted a job offer as an acting head of business studies (yes, as a newly qualified teacher) with two experience points - and the promise of responsibility points in 1996.
We all (newspapers, teacher trainers and politicians) owe a duty of care to potential student teachers to be honest about experience points.
