Hi, having had 6 interviews from 6 applications I have clearly been doing SOMETHING right- just not everything. Well, now one of my referees is on maternity leave. She would still do the reference, but would it look better on my application form to have the deputy head, who hasn't really worked with me? I should explain I am on a very part-time contract in a school where I have previously taught full-time- but they can't give me as many hours as I would like so they know I am applying for a job with more hours and hopefully permanent! I have done long term planning for the KS that the deputy leads and I have been in planning meetings etc with him, but he has never had to observe my teaching whereas my KS leader was involved with me on a daily basis, as time goes on though she has less of an idea of my role in school whereas I am appearing more on the deputy's radar as I have recently done supply in his KS.
