  3. Thanks for this Theo.
    The school e-mailed me a copy of the offer letter the following day, and will give me the original tomorrow. It has a tear off slip at the bottom for me to sign to accept!

  14. Dear Theo,
    Many thanks for this information. I have been offered a part time role working 2 days a week as an NQT MFL teacher which is fab, just what i needed after the stressful pgce with two kids. I already stated that I would not work mondays and that my preferred days are thursday and friday.
    In this time I negotiated to be M2 given that i live in inner london and will be travelling outer and had some teaching experience.
    However it has been well over a month since they said they had been working on their timetabling. I went into school a few weeks back and was given my classes verbally and then told they worked to a 2 week timetable (i wish i had known this before), with the end of term looming, they have still not told me what days I will be working in sept. Is this normal? I have not signed anything yet because I find it wierd to sign up to something with unknowns.
    I had also asked for this matter to be cleared up quickly as I could sort out my childcare. I hope to do some supply and other bits and pieces adhoc to ensure I can keep my current live out au pair. I am a little frustrated and hope I dont come across ungrateful as I turned down a 3 day a week job interview as I thought this was going to be better but now i wonder should i have gone for the interview after all!
    I guess I am finding the transiton of career changing, all rather strange as these things are never unknowns outside the teaching profession before you sign a contract.
    Please advise urgently!
