  1. They think it's important. 95% of the time, you know why - there's almost always an agenda (need an NQT to balance books; need a specific gender to balance that; one candidate is bessy mates with headteacher etc). I've never asked for feedback, because I always know that I'm the best candidate and that they made a poor decision, therefore their feedback is pointless bollocks as they have to ability to discern my undoubted brilliance.

    The job would have been a bit of a monster for several reasons.
    I really, really meant to decline feedback, but when offered it forgot to say nooooooooo!

    Just because you addressed it does not mean you addressed it successfully.

    Well, you only have my word for it of course.
    Usually I'm well into being reflective and looking towards improvement, but in this case there wasn't any more that could be done with the information provided.
    Sometimes you just know that you and the school don't suit each other - and it's for the best that you don't get the position.
    But when feedback is odd, like not having had any experience of something, having worked in special school for that condition for some years. (!), it does make you wish you'd said 'no!'
