Contacting School - Approximately

Discussion in 'Independent' started by privateteacher, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. Once making a formal job application, how long before Heads contact your current school, provided of course that they are interested in you?

    If it ia noon deadline, can some Heads be in touch that afternoon or is the process much longer? I am talking both Independent schools.

    Thanks.

    How long is a piece of string . . .
    Any school, whether indy or maintained, will do things differently with regards to timing. I couldn't actually answer this question about my own school, because it would vary according to all sorts of factors.
    Sorry not to be able to give you an answer that is of any help - or consolation - to you.
    Good luck!
