Hi all, I know Theo is away but thought i'd ask the rest of you for your thoughts. I currently teach in a medium size independent school, which I assume like a lot of others at the moment is faced with a fall in pupil numbers. Personally I think if there is a further reduction my dept. may be at risk of having to lose someone, and i'd rather jump before i'm pushed and not run the risk of not having a job at all for Sept next year. I'm always keeping an eye out for jobs, but if I did end up applying for posts elsewhere this year, when i'm asked the typical question of "why did you apply for this post", would it be acceptable to explain the situation i.e. I may be at risk of redundancy at my present school (even if I haven't officially been told there WILL be redundancies). Would this put potential employees off as it'll be obvious i'm applying mainly because I don't want to risk not having a job, and would it be ok to mention this in application forms where they ask the same thing, or should I just wait until it's asked at interview, if I got to that stage? Thanks.
