How do I reply back to this text (PGCE related)?
I'm a PGCE student and my mentor from the first school placement I did texted me about a job opening at the school and he is encouraging me to apply there. I am unsure as to how to reply back as I am not planning on applying.

Dear (insert teacher's name),
Thank you for your kindness and encouragement in suggesting that I apply for the job opening. At the moment, however, I am unable to apply due to other commitments. I hope this note finds your well.

A simple, "thank you for letting me know about the opportunity but 'I'm currently not looking for a placement' or 'I don't feel this is a good match for me'

Be very polite but hint that you have made plans for your future. You may still need your mentor's character reference next time.
