I've applied to a job whereby the interviews are the week commencing 15th Jan. I'm on a maternity contract till 29th of march at my current school. They've put my contract end date as the last day before the Easter hols - which could mean 2.5 weeks no pay! (I cant afford to lose that much pay). The new job start date is February 2018. What on earth does this mean with regard to my current contract? When do I give resignation? When do I leave here and when can I start there? Any advice welcomed.
