Dear Theo: I got the job ( formally known as Ms Independent)

    Dear Theo,

    I just wanted to let you know that after 10 years teaching in the Independent sector, I have been offered a job in a wonderful academy.

    It was my second interview, the first one gave very positive feedback that I used towards this interview/lesson ob.

    The Exec Head said I "interviewed very well and blew them away with my passion" :) This was on top of the fact that my sickness record has not been the best, due to 5 operations over the course of a year. They did not hold that against me as I was upfront and honest about it in the interview and actually cried when I talked about how much it had impacted on my life and career.

    So to anyone who thinks you cannot transfer from Indy to Maintained... you can! Also anyone who thinks you cannot get a job if you have had a long period of illness- there are Head's that look past this!

    Excellent news!

    You're a Star, a Sparkly Star, @MsJ001 !

    And I expect that other posters will want to congratulate you too, as you give them hope for their own job seeking.


    You've really done yourself proud with that job offer, so you get a star!

    Now go and read the advice for the next stage:

    Got a job offer? What to do next!

    Best wishes for a rewarding and successful career in your new school

    My question now is...should the verbal offer be followed up with a formal offer in the post?
