Dear Theo - I'm totally confused!

    Me again, asking questions, sorry!
    I know I'm always confused, but more so than usual[​IMG]!. I've seen a job that I could apply for, but it starts in April. The problem is that I should be finishing on 30th March, but apparently my agency said they want to extend my contract until the summer. <u>BUT </u>the school haven't said anything to me, and I can NEVER find the person I need to ask.
    Should I just apply to this other school anyway, assuming I'm going to finish in 3 days time, knowing that I probably wouldn't get aan interview anyway, or just continue applying for permanent teaching posts in September [​IMG]?

    Yes, you apply.
    Apply for all posts after Easter, May, or September.
    If they then ask you to stay, you still go to any interviews that you get, and then decide whether to stay or move if these interviews result in an offer.
    Why not? You have got others!
    Best wishes

    If you've heard nothing 'official' from your school, that's a very good reason for applying elsewhere. Might even make your school appreciate what a gem they've got in you.
