Italy job, should I apply?

    New head at this particular school in September and suddenly so many vacancies. Am worried the staff are jumping ship for a workplace-related reason. How can I find out? It is so risky to resign from a good job here for a total unknown, particularly at the moment. (I did read the thread advising against any job changes with covid around.) I have searched the internet extensively with no luck. The school is part of a big consortium in Tuscany.

    There's a TES Forum for Overseas. It's a couple of screens further down.

    Try looking on there, search Italy, to read any past information.

    Then you can post on there.

    Do do the search first, as they get a bit tired of people posting without first searching for what they are asking about!

    Keep safe, everyone

    So I'm deducing that you're interested in working in a school in Tuscany where there is a new head and many vacancies.
    Schools have large turnovers every so often, sometimes it's chance, sometimes it's a symptom of problems in a school. Sometimes a new head sorts things out, sometimes the chaos gets worse.
    You can go for an interview and see for yourself. No commitment other than travel costs in a time of pandemic
    If you're currently in a good job, why do you want to move? There's a lot to be said for good jobs at the moment.
