Potential opportunity in KL- not sure?

    Hi,

    I don't know if I can post the name of the school on here so i won't just in case but I had a preliminary interview with a school near KL in Malaysia this morning. It seemed to go well and I'm meeting them in London next week. I got a genuine and friendly vibe from the headteacher and it came across as a lovely place to work, but I've not found many reviews from teachers and they seem quite mixed. It's not a top tier school- they described themselves as a level 1 school at a level 2 price, and I know that my contract wouldn't be as high as elsewhere which is a consideration. From the research I have done there seem to be loads of people who have been offered posts there and they offered me both interviews before the closing date- do they just interview everyone on a first come first served basis? I don't know what to make of that, whether it's good or bad....

    Basically, I just feel conflicted and unsure what I'd do if I was offered the job as I just don't know how I feel and this is my first international school experience (very evidently!) Would I hang on a little before accepting and see what else comes up if I'm feeling a little insecure? I feel like I'd never feel 100% secure unless I knew someone who could tell me first hand!
