  1. Call him. I got a job when I was in this situation and a head recommended me to another head so take the meeting :)

    Call him - you never know what it could lead to. It's incredibly nice of him to do what he's done, as he is under no obligation to do it, so definitely follow it up! From an unsuccessful interview I got a recommendation to another school (and got a job) - there could be similar situation or indeed some work at that school. You then have a real chance to impress, which so many unsuccessful interview candidates never get to do!
    This is a great opportunity, so be brave, it is nervewracking - and don't leave it too long before you call. Good luck!!!

    It is not usual for a Head to say this or offer this.
    You clearly have a lot to offer this school, and he has realised this.
    I hope that by now you have called him!
