This to-the-point little guide contains everything you need to know about jobs, career progression and interviews. Good teachers deserve the good guide.

You're a good teacher. Don't be modest, you know you are. The key to satisfaction lies in knowing who you are and what you want, and then making the choices that suit. The real aim here is to make sure that as you approach each step on the career ladder, the choices you make and the actions you take are really worthy of your status as a good teacher. That's to say they will be deeply considered, well-researched, honest and self-aware and carried out with confidence and professionalism.

Good teachers are flexible visionaries. Good teachers are doers. Good teachers know where to find the jobs. Good teachers do not count their chickens. Good teachers know that, in job hunting, knowledge is power. Good teachers know how to fill in application forms. Good teachers have good answers to interview questions. Good teachers avoid interview pitfalls. Good teachers don't feel rejected. Good teachers are decisive about the job offer.
