are all teaching positions legally required to be advertised?? advice needed

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by nicolajayne1989, Apr 29, 2012.

  1. i was just wondering if all teaching positions legally were required to be advertised, or if someone allready was on a different morning PPA cover contrct within the school if they could be then offered with no interview or job being advertised a new full time role within the school??

    Legally, the only posts that have to be advertised are those of head and Deputy; and even then, in exceptional cases, the Governors can get round this.
    However, many Local Authorities and Governing Bodies have their own protocol and procedures that say that the school must advertise all, or most, teaching positions. And this is often interpreted casually as "It's the law - we have to advertise".
    And actually this makes sense, as it gives credibility to the person who is offered the post, if they can be seen to have gone through a fair appointment procedure against outside competition.
    P.S. Why has this thread been given 5 stars? How weird! Must have been a slippery mouse.
