Dear Theo I am currently looking for work and am looking at roles other than teaching right now (as well as looking at agency work, teaching and otherwise). Is it ethical to apply for a job in a school that is not teaching (maybe admin or cover teaching) but still look for a teaching job - maybe taking a permanent role now, but leaving soon after to take a teaching role? How would taking a non-teaching role affect my job chances for a teaching job and what will it mean for references? Also, what are the chances of taking a cover teacher role (for example) and getting a couple of classes of my own from the school, so teaching just a little bit - and how will that affect how the school views me from a legal standpoint? Many thanks, Terri.
