Asking administration for a recommendation

    Hi all,

    I am a British teacher currently working in Florida. At the end of this academic year, I plan to move back to the UK. Could someone please explain the protocol for asking administration for a reference?
    If I am shortlisted for a job back in the UK, school's will ask for a reference form them directly, so I think it's slightly different from the way things happen here with teacher recommendations. Do I tell administration of my intentions now or do I wait until I get an offer of interview in the UK.
    Thanks for any responses.

    Simple, go to the boss.
    Say, something along the line of:
    "Would you mind giving me a reference if requested by future employers back in the UK, PLEASE"
