I had an interview for a part-time post yesterday (three days a week; April start) and I'm waiting to hear back with their decision. I think it went well, however, I forgot to ask whether the post would definitely continue as three days a week in the following academic years - this is quite important to me as I'm hoping to study for a PhD in parallel to teaching. I'm kicking myself for not asking when I had the chance. What is the etiquette re contacting schools before they contact you? How would this look? Should I just wait to see if they offer me the job, and ask then? Thanks!
