Abstract:

It’s the New Year and the trainees join the staff at another new school. But this time it’s all part of the final assessment. After 10 years as an industrial chemist, Ian is having difficulty adjusting to modern school life. He was told at his last school that his teaching had to improve. And the pressure is on at home as he’s just become a father for the first time. An observation by his school mentor does not go as well as he had hoped and he realizes that he has a lot to learn if he is to meet the teaching standards in time. Ian and Lisa prepare to teach their first lessons in their new schools.They feel as if they are starting over. For Lisa, getting a teaching job will mean that her family can move off the council estate in Manchester. While her partner, Pete, prepares for his gig as a Robbie Williams tribute artist, Lisa begins to prepare for her first job interview. Even before the trainees have passed the course they have to start applying for jobs. But art is not a shortage subject and getting a job may not be as easy as Lisa hopes.
