Dear Theo I took the advice given - and landed myself an interview!! Really pleased as job is local, my subject area, in very good school etc. etc.. then spent 3 plus hours planning lesson... only to receive a phone call today to tell me that the post is actualy only until Christmas... I am gutted! I have told them that I will come to the interview anyway... they don't want me to teach anymore either... I pretty fed up to be honest as in temporary contract at the moment and wanted something permanent - will it look bad on applications with two temporary jobs??
