I'm currently looking for a new role. I have applied for a post, and I when I saw the advert I immediately thought it was a good opportunity for me. I felt the role suited me really well and really liked what I read about the school. I then spoke to the head and made an appointment to visit the school, and again really liked what I heard/saw. However, half way round the school the deputy head told me the school is going to become an academy in April and any staff appointed before then would be appointed by the authority and have usual term of employment of a teacher but once the school becomes an academy their terms and conditions would transfer to the sponsor in April. My question really is what are the pros/cons of working for an academy and can my pay/conditions etc. change once the school has academy status? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
