I am on the brink of applying for my fist headship position. I have just been told that one of my references must be from my current LEA if applying for any headship position.I was not aware of this! Does anyone know if this really is the case? Would that be the first reference and does it take the place of a reference by my current Head Teacher or would the second reference have to be my current Head Teacher? Also, if I must have a reference from the LEA, do I just put xxxxx LA in the box on the application form or do you have to have a particular person from the LEA? Sorry if this seems pedantic but i am slightly confused and I imagine it is important to get this right.
