I have just missed out on a job at a CE VA school as my answer about implementing the CE ethos was 'weaker' than the favoured candidate (this was the deciding factor, apparently I matched, and in some cases exceeded, the successful applicant on every other count). I explained that I have prior experience of working in a CE school, where I successfully implemented a CE ethos. I would continue to do so at this school. I saw that the core values were an integral part of being a 'good' citizen etc etc.... where did I do wrong? I asked for feedback in this respect and was simply told that the successful candidate was stronger!
