They’ve been ok up till now. Bah.
That’s what I have done,what a faff.
I don't think the referees need to be students you've had via TH. Anyone who would write something nice about you seems to be fine, which is what makes it all so pointless.
Exactly! Like the guy you shared your cell with in Pentonville. When are people going to realise that, at best, most references are absolutely useless.
Hahaha! Very good!
So...I will ask Oscar Wilde to pen me a few lines....hee hee.
Actually, I seem to remember once showing my disdain by offering Micky Mouse as a referee.
Ah, was that the French parent, Monsieur Michel Vermine?!
I had a look at TH today, the first time for many months, and was pleased to note that they have now accepted my student feedback as references. I'm glad I didn't waste time chasing people to be referees.
I think this sounds like somebody may have flagged you or did a report to TH and so they want some reassurances. Normally at least two references would be sufficient and so if you are being asked for more references this to me is a red flag situation. God Luck though !
If you have current clients it would be a good idea to ask them to provide references. I generally use the most recent " leaver clients". to ask for references. In any case like you said many other platforms do not ask for references and it does not make sense to rely totally on one platform to get students.
