I am a teacher, a HoD in an international school. I've been thinking about leadership in my current school (there will soon be an opening), but have been getting the vibe that the barrier is that the subject area that I teach is seemingly hard to recruit for here, rather than my skills or experience.
Is that enough of a reason not to apply?
Should I just wait until I see an opening elsewhere? I think, if that is the attitude, I'm likely to have to do that if I want to progress.
