Received a call from a former colleague who was asked to recommend good teachers to join her new school. I've been invited in for an informal chat with their head of department. Anyone had any experience of these 'informal chats'? I've gone to one before and gained a £7000 pay rise from it but my head teacher flipped at the way in which another school had pursued me. This time it would be to move on but what is your reaction to this practice?
