I recently applied for my first HT post and had a phone call to say there had been some restructuring within the trust and the position was no longer available, yet they were still interested and had several other HT position in other schools within the trust. They offered an interview, which I accepted (experience needed of the process) the interview was set up for the following week. The interview was then cancelled four days before due to a member of the panel being now ' unavailable' Is this a tactical move to advertise a good/ outstanding schools then present other schools in more challenging circumstances? I have been directed by the trust to consider an RI school? There is no indication of salary also. I really need to know the salary range- how do I approach this before interview?? I'm just so confused with the whole bizarre process. Any advice greatly appreciated regarding salary negotiations or anything else!!! Or do I just wait and see what else comes up? I'd be happy with a Sep 18 start so I have time on my side.
