I have read previous threads on this, but most of them are from quite a few years ago. Basically, I have two interviews in the next two weeks. The second one is my preferred school because it is a lot closer to my house and prefer the ethos and think it is more suitable for me as a person and a teacher. If I was currently in stable employment, I would just decide the first interview and only attend the second one, as I understand its unprofessional and wrong to mess schools about. I am currently doing supply, but I will not be able to carry this on for much longer because I haven't yet completed my NQT year. If I don't get a job soon, I will be unemployed. The schools I have got interviews at are in different counties and 30 miles away from each other. So surely the heads wouldn't talk? Also, one school is under a national academy chain so surely they would communicate to other heads in that group rather than the other schools, particularly those not in the local area? I live in an area where teaching jobs don't come up very often (hence I haven't managed to complete my NQT year yet). Say I get offered a job by the first school (unlikely, but possible), but attend the next interview a few days later and get offered a job at that school (again unlikely, but possible), surely I can turn the first school down, especially if there were multiple candidates at the interview. There are literally no other jobs in the area atm (spanning 60 miles around) so the chances of the other candidates accepting jobs elsewhere would be slim. I know this sounds very unprofessional, but I want to be in the right school to complete my NQT year. I don't want to mess the school around but if I decline a few days later, it's not like I've left it a long time to create chaos for the school. I don't see it as unprofessional that I am trying to find the best place for me to develop my career and a school that best suits me as a person and a teacher. Despite my two schools being in different counties and not under the same academy chain, would it still hurt my reputation? When I speak to teachers in schools where I have been doing supply, they haven't heard of the first school as it's quite a distance away and in a different county. Thanks in advance for your replies Please understand that I do not like being unprofessional, but I am in a desperate situation here.
