  1. Hi,

    As a teacher applying for a post, who do I put as my two references? It says at least one much be from my last school. Someone suggested I should put my head and my HOD. My previous "employment" before this school was training, a year and a half ago. For various reasons I'm a little nervous about having two references from this school. Do I have to put both from this school? Is it bad practice to put my PGCE leader?

    I could do with a response tonight as I only just found a decent post and the deadline is noon tomorrow.

    That's OK, we could tell that you were stressed!
    It's just that this is a particularly nice, friendly, supportive thread, unlike some of the jungles out there in the big world wide web!
    Hope you got it all tied up and in on time. Crossing our fingers for you.
