Hi all, I realise that this is a question that gets asked a lot, but I wondered if the circumstances under which I was offered the post provides any mitigating circumstances. I arrived at the school, and taught my sample lesson almost instantly, then was instantly interviewed by the head (alone). Afterwards they asked if I was still a serious candidate, at this point I was, as I assumed a tour of the school and meeting the department would follow. However I was taken aback when they said that they would be in touch. They got in touch within a couple of hours and offered me the job, I accepted but said that I wanted to make a revisit to meet the department that I was working with and the head said that this was fine. However, I do not think I managed to convey quite what I wanted to convey - that I would only accept the job subject to what I saw but I now realise I made it seem like a firm offer. The more I have thought about it, the more that doesn't add up, particularly being offered a job without meeting a representative of the dept and now my gut instinct is that I should withdraw and keep looking. However I realise that this would be a such an inconvenience to the school and I do not want to put them in such a position nor do I want to disadvantage anyone from the same training institution applying in the future but I am really reserved about signing a contract on the grounds of what I have seen / lack of. Especially as this is my first job. Thank you for any advice.
