6th form teaching, Foundation Learning - anyone help?

Discussion in 'PSHE' started by polkaudio, Sep 10, 2011.

  1. Hi there,
    I am a French teacher, responsible for 30 Y 11's again this year. Languages are compulsory at our school. We follow OCR - coursework for speaking and writing and so lots to do.
    I have, without being asked, been 'lumbered' with FL, Life Skills for 2 hours a week. The head of CH/CR says it's not her job to plan a scheme of work etc and that she's having nothing to do with it. I've been told to create a scheme and plans. This is the first time it has been taught. It's OCR. I will have 15 kids all together working at different levels.
    I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed and don't know where to start. My French planning/marking takes up all my time as it is. (I went part time after maternity - 4 days a week as I have 2 year old twins) I already have the most contact time out of anyone of my department - 75%, compared to 68% for full-timers. I am 2nd in dept too.
    Help!!!
    Has anyone taught/delivered this? Should I be concerned with the extra work load it brings??? I need to know facts before I take it further.
