.....I'm faced with having to formally apply for a job the Head, 'head-hunted' me for two years ago (I'm on the second of 2 x 12 month contracts). When I met with the Head and Dep. H. to discuss the job originally, it was on the premise it would eventually be made permanent! It hasn't been! I feel all kinds of 'upset' about this situation and just wondered if any of you had a similar experience I could learn from. I still think if the Head 'really' wanted me for the job, I'd have it? We were OFSTED'd in February and guess who got the only 'outstanding' rating; your's truly! Yet here I am! Opinions please; help me out here.
speak to your union. someone at our place was automatically made permanent after 2 years of temporary contracts.
spiderkin speak to your union. someone at our place was automatically made permanent after 2 years of temporary contracts.
I understood that to be the case too; then found out it had changed to 4 years.
sjl9876I would speak to your head about this as it may be a formality that they have to do..
This is all coming from the Head via the LEA. It's to do with reorganisation, some schools closing and permanent staff from these organisations not having jobs anymore. I do not teach in mainstream; it is a PRU. Lot's of them in England are being closed/reorganised or turned into Academies. Wish I had never left mainstream in the first place, very stupid move! Interviews are next Monday for 'my' job and I was told today I will not be allowed to be interviewed as permanent displaced teachers have 'first' chance of a job. IF no one is appointed, then the job is advertised on council website and then I can be interviewed along with any one else that is suitably qualified. You never know, maybe I will end up with the job after all lol!!
BEGINING TO THINK I'M BETTER OFF OUT OF IT!!
