Dear Theo and others with experience How important is it to visit before I apply? Are schools likely to look on the application less favourably? I am urgently seeking an NQT post now as though I had 2 interviews I messed up one and came second in the other. I have 4 weeks left of my final placement and don't want to mess the school around too much by flitting in and out on visits and hopefully interviews but most ads seem to want you to visit. I do know that they are helpful for me too as I have already decided against schools twice on visiting them but feeling I need to get less picky. Thoughts?
