I have a friend who is being bullied by her head teacher. She is a highly paid teacher and we (and her union rep) think it’s pay related. She is definitely going to leave by the end of the year. I have advised her to get signed off for a couple of weeks as she is very stressed and it’s effecting her health. I went through something similar (not at her school), as did another friend, so I know what she’s going through. I left it too late to get signed off and ended up losing a lot of hair due to stress related dermatitis (it’s all grown back now and I’m at a good school with an understanding head). My question is: if she does take my advice and get signed off for a few weeks, can she go for interviews if any come up whilst she’s off? TIA.
