    Unless I am misreading something, isn't the NASWUT resolution in favour of using unqualified staff for PPA? Or not opposed to it.

    Sound to me like permanent teachers are running scared of loosing their jobs from cut backs and requests for redundancies or even short term contract working. Hence .... HOW can we keep our jobs........ I know lets attack all those in schools that are not qualified teachers so they are scape goats for redundancies WHEN IN FACT it is the teachers and unions themselves that are at fault for wanting PPA time in the first place ............WHEN THEY KNEW all along that the Government could not afford to pay for qualified teachers to cover for PPA time...... so who are suffering now............. the quallified teachers and of course supply teachers who are being side lined for Cover Supervisors a position that seems to have no job description, no pay scale and no recognisable training or transferrable qualifcation.
    The Unions seem to be back tracking to suit their own aims.
