Hi everyone, I really could do with some advice! I am currently in a full time TA role in a Year 6 class, however I have decided that after the Summer I would like to work in a different school in a different age group. I have found it very challenging in this class (which I know has helped me in a lot of ways!) but I really would like to start a fresh somewhere new in September. My contract technically 'runs out' in July and is 'subject to renewal'. My questions are: 1) I would like to start applying for jobs for September soon, where would I stand with time off for interviews? I know if I was lucky enough to get an interview, it may be during school time and I don't know how to approach this. I want to be honest, obviously but I don't know who to ask! 2) If I want to leave in July (i.e; last day of term July 22nd), when do I have to hand my notice in? (And do I have to if my contract ends anyway?) 3) What do I put as my leaving date, 31st August? I really could do with advice because whilst I want to be respectful to the school and be honest, I am really not happy where I am and I haven't been for some time which is why I would like to start somewhere new in September. Many thanks, Tickles.
