Dear Theo, I am currently an NQT at a Secondary school where I taught as an "unqualified teacher"/"instructor" last year. I am currently looking at moving schools, due to needing to address my work-life balance and looking for somewhere a bit more local. This is my first time looking for a 'proper' teaching job, so I have a few questions: Firstly, all my teacher training has been in English, however I also teach half a timetable of psychology A-level, and have a psychology undergraduate degree. I am keen to continue to teach both subjects but think that this is an unlikely combination for a new school. Should I apply for English jobs, and mention that I can also teach psychology, or vice-versa? Or both? Will it disadvantage me if the school is clearly only offering one subject on the job description? Secondly, when or how do I tell my school that I am looking for a new job? At the moment my school is happy to keep me on if I want to stay and I don't want to jeopardise this in case I don't get a new job. Obviously I will need my current Head to write a reference for me: what is the etiquette here? Lastly, I went straight from Uni into this job, so who do I use as a second reference (after my Head)? My mentor? One of my training tutors (although we didn't have that much contact with each other)? My supervisor from my undergrad? I realise I am very lucky to have a job at the moment so I apologise for all the questions. I have looked through the forum but can't find anything that quite answers my questions. Thank you in advance.
