Dear Theo and others, does my school have to allow me time off to attend an interview?

    Well done! That's great news to have been shortlisted!
    They are not obliged to let you have the time off, no. But usually they do.
    Try and be as helpful as possible. Do you actually need the whole day - could you come back to school afterwards? How could you set work for your classes that would be easy for someone else to deal with? You have a couple of weeks to organise your work so that should be possible.
    Don't forget to read very carefully the interview clickables inside the Welcome thread.
    We look forward to you starting that new thread called Dear Theo - I got that job!
    Best wishes

    Thanks Lara, I guess that is fair enough about not being paid especially as someone will need to be paid to cover me....
