Hi, I hope someone can help. The situation is this. I have an interview for 2nd in Dept, there is also another internal applicant as well as four external. I only know the year group I am teaching and there is a chance it is a group I see regularly, however the other internal applicant was discussing the lesson plan with the T/A and handing over a copy of plan,resources,powerpoint etc.- meaning that they know which group they are teaching. I know it shouldn't matter, but it's very difficult not to feel peeved. It is impossible to have a 'level playing field' when there are internal and external applicants but I feel that it's not right that they can plan knowing they wil have classroom support when I cannot. I get on well with the other applicant and will not mind if they are successful, it's more the knowledge that someone in the department has loaded the dice. Any ideas anyone?
