reference - head or line manager?

    Yes, ILS is correct here. You have to have your Head of your current or most recent school.
    Well, actually it is your employer, but no-one expects the Chair of Governors or the Local Authority Director of Education to do it, so means the Head.
    In a large school where the Head does not know everyone well enough, s/he will ask someone else - a Deputy or a Head of Department - to draft the reference, and then just add/take away, change if s/he feels like it, sign it and send it off.
    Best of luck with the applications - don't forget to read the shortlisting clickables inside the Welcome thread!
