Well, I am classed as being employed by the recruitment agency I work for, it is not the LA. Hence why I can't understand this as they must be charging the school a hell of a lot instead of employing me on a tempory contract. As for the Year 5 job, I have since found out that they have given it to an AHD Senco, hence me covering his/her operation and then moving to year 4 to cover the maternity. So they aren't actually advertising for either job. Is it unprofessional to just take the job and still continue to apply for others and see if I get anything offered through the LA Pool? I don't want to turn it down and then have to do another year of supply, having been handed a job on a plate. Really not too comfortable with starting my NQT year in Year 5 and then having to move down to Year 4 in October/November!
