    I've asked the audience, phoned a friend and got to 50/50 and everyone is telling me something different. When do I have to tell work I'm looking to leave
    a) When I start to look for jobs on TES?
    b) When I actually send an application form?
    c) When I actually get an interview?
    Many thanks

    The answer for £1 million is: at the very latest (b). It is important that the Head and your HoD don't hear about it first when a request for reference drops on their desk.
    And make sure that you tell them how much you have gained professionally working in that school/department, and that's what has made it possible for you to now decide to move on in your career, to capitalise on the excellent experience with them
    Have a good read of the clickebles inside the Welcome thread, whcih will help you write a reallu super application.
    Best of luck!
