I’m an NQT and applied for a couple of teaching agencies because there’s not many jobs in this area at the moment. Very straight forward. 2-3 references (2 schools, university I went to for PGCE). I registered for another agency and I gave those 3 references... but now they’re asking for more! I graduated with my BA Hons in 2018 and started my PGCE in 2019. They want references from every place I freelanced with in those few months. They also want a reference from the university I did my bachelors degree. This is a lot of people to bother. Is this normal? The other agencies didn’t ask for this much.
