Thank you again for the application advice you gave me a few days ago. Since then another issue has arisen which I hadn't anticipated and haven't been able to find a proper answer to. I'm an NQT applying for positions in London starting in January. I started a part-time MA in education in September at a university in a different city - it's where I took my PGCE, I was offered a place early on and it was easy to transfer my MA credits. It was also very financially beneficial to start the course this year. It does mean though that one day (or afternoon) each month until May I need to travel there for a lecture for the compulsary module. I hope this won't be a huge problem for the right headteacher, who might appreciate my efforts for further education and allow me to negotiate with NQT time or whatever rather than see it as a barrier to me working. My former PGCE mentor advised me to bring it up during school visits to judge whether it is worth applying to schools and warned me that it's likely schools will be extremely unhappy if I apply without letting them know. However, when I explained during my first school visit yesterday, the head seemed worried and said that I wasn't obliged to tell him and it can't be considered during the selection process under equal opportunities laws. I now have no idea where I actually stand - whether what he said applies only to his school or that London Borough and may not apply elswhere, whether I should tell headteachers before applying or not and whether in reality I will be offered a full-time position when I need this extra time off. Is there anywhere I can find a definitive answer so that I know my rights in this situation?
