Dear Theo- References

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Ally19, May 4, 2011.

  1. Hello Theo,
    I would like your advice on who to put in the references section of job application forms.
    <font size="2">I am an NQT who
    qualified in July 2010 and have recently been doing supply work whilst applying
    for permanent jobs. Up until now, I have been using my university progress
    tutor and the head teacher of my final teaching practice school as my
    references. </font>
    I have recently been supplying at a local school who expect me to
    be with them for the rest of the summer term (the teacher I am covering for is
    on sick leave and is not expected to return this year). I have been teaching
    there for a month now and the head teacher is happy to write me a reference.
    Would it be better to have this head teacher as my reference
    instead of my final teaching placement head teacher?


    Also, I would it be better to put my supply agency as a reference
    instead of my university progress tutor? They are a LA supply service and I
    know they have given me good references before, as schools have told me they
    had recommended me due to good feedback from previous supply jobs.
    <font size="2">Many Thanks </font>
