Why is it Colleges Schools and Academies the organisations that run these don't seem to be in the real world? They post a job for such ridiculous hours - So many teaching and lecturing posts advertised are between £24K and £45K but then the 'Pro rata' is often buried somewhere. Half of them are being sought by recruitment agencies because their HR departments don't have a 'Scooby Doo' what the post entails and then you get into it you find that they want someone to work 2 hours on a Monday, 4.5 hours on a Wednesday and 1.75 hours on a Friday! Who is it that fill these positions? How can anyone survive on a few hours here and a few hours there? They quite often don't even lump the hours together that might make it feasible if one had another thing to support ones'self.
