I am currently working out the timetable for next year. I have two teachers in my department who are desperate to teach Further Maths. The trouble is I know they will struggle. The reason is that whilst teaching the single maths A-Level over the two years, they have been rightly been asking for help on some questions from myself or others. However, some of these questions have been very basic. They almost always struggle with proof too. I have told them I don't think they are ready but they are pushing for reasons; I am meeting with them tommorow to explain. I am going to write down staff who I know will not have problems. I don't want to say to them that the reason for not allocating it to them is due to the help they have needed, a lot of it I am not meant to know about and also it is very much necessary they continue to do that. But it's precisely that and the fact they have not helped with any Gifted and Talented curricular activities from years 7 to 11 + they have no knowledge outside of the curriculum which is why I cannot allocate this to them at this time. Should I say this to them, i.e the truth. Also am I being reasonable?
