Hi, I want to apply for a job that has just come up, but I am unsure who to put down as my referees. To cut a long story short, I finished my PGCE in 2010 and have done supply/taken maternity leave ever since. I moved into primary supply recently as I found there was more work there than in secondary. I usually put my university tutor down as a referee and my mentor (the head of business) at one of my placement schools. I always put a comment saying that my current employer isn't down as a referee because he doesn't really know much about my teaching, and I feel that these two people have more experience of me in the classroom. Anyway, my ex-mentor is starting a new job as a deputy head in September, so her contact details are no longer at the school I worked with her at. She has specifically requested that I don't give her personal details out, but hasn't got any school details until she starts in September (the closing date is 31st August). Do I put her down with her old details? Do I put my agency down as my referee? (even though they don't know much about me and might not be in the office until September) Or do I put a non-teaching reference from my ex-manager when I worked in retail? Please help!
