Who to use as referees?

    Has anyone got any suggestions? My current head is obvious but I don't know who to use for a second. It's my first post. Can I use my NQT mentor as well as my head or is that a problem because they're in the same school?

    No problem at all with both references from the same school, especially if they're 'current' as opposed to someone from another past school who may feel lees able to comment on your current practice.
     
  4. Lara's totally right! Another alternative is someone from your PGCE course be that tutor, mentor or host teacher.
    Good luck!
