Basically, here it is in a nutshell. My school has 2 of us teaching a subject. There is only really the demand for 1 (about 30 lessons in a 30 period week, but people who have it as a second subject who could cover the PPA time). Both of us have just been taken on. I was given a PERMANENT contract in February, starting in September. To cover up until the end of this current year, my colleague was given a contract until such a time. Having done such a good job of the admin side, they have now been given a 1 YEAR ROLLING contract. I am now slightly worried, that come next year they will get rid of one of us, as I believe even now they don't need the two of us. My question; Having the permanent contract, do I stand a better chance of being kept on if it came to this? Or would they be able to take their pick? We are both under the same job title. Thanks in advance.
