Hi tes community. This is my first post and I hope the community can help me. I am excepting to qualify as an NQT for this year. I have accepted an NQT job for the new academic year but have subsequently received a number of interviews from jobs I had applied earlier. It happens to be that these interviews are closer to home and ideally suited to me geographically. Nevertheless, I have committed verbally and remain grateful to the school. My question is how can I politely refuse being shortlisted for an interview without losing the possibility of being offered a job at the school again? Many thanks!
