Dear Theo, Which school to put as "Present/most recent post"?

    Hi there Ronnie!
    Here's my solution.
    For current employer,write: Supply at various schools, including and put the one that you will use as a referee plus another that they will like. By this I mean has a good local reputation,or is similar to school you are applying to. Or both!
    You'll need to ask about giving the new Head as a referee.If s/he says no, I'm afraid that you'll have to give the agency which is a big pity.
    However, whichever you give of these 2, add a short paragraph in your letter thus: I have given Agency X as my first reference. However if you would wish for a reference from a Headteacher who knows my work well, Mr Theo Griff of Grungy Green School (give full contact details here) is very happy to write in my support.
    OR if you can get new Head, the you write: I have given Mr John Smith of New Cross School as my first reference. I have worked there for a short space of time only, however, so if you would wish for a reference from a Headteacher who knows my work well, Mr Theo Griff of Grungy Green School (give full contact details here) is very happy to write in my support.
    Best wishes
