Hi I'm seeking a little advice here really. I haven't been searching for another job as such however whilst browsing today my dream job at a school I've had my eye on for over a year has just come up!! I am just coming to the end of my Primary NQT without any problems and I'm not sure what to do now. I have enjoyed my year but have never seen myself staying at the school long (various reasons-I dont really like the area I am currently living in, not keen on the school ethos, way it is run and no scope for taking on extra responsibility). I dont feel strongly about any of the reasons they have just always been in the back of my mind. Anyway, as Im sure is obvious the resignation date has just passed and I would feel a terrible guilt about approaching my head (who is leaving herself at the end of this summer term) and sort of 'leaving the school in the thick of it'. At the same time I feel I would kick myself if I didn't go for this job. I understand that it is not particularly professional for me to try and resign after the date and that's why I am struggling with the decision. Also, if I didn't get interview or said job then I would probably just stay at my school. As I have said I am not unhappy just thinking about opportunity. What is the likeliness of this working out? What will happen if my head says no and I go ahead with the application? Thanks in advance for any help/advice!!
