AST posts, advertised but not fulfilled?

    I am currently a curriculum assistant in a maths faculty who has seen two jobs that are advertising for aspiring AST. I have not been accredited yet but have done head of fac part time and currently have unpaid teaching and learning responsibilities.
    I am frequently told that AST posts are being withdrawn and colleuges are warning me about moving somewhere and being made promises that may not be kept. Is there any way of getting a school to put in writing that they intend to fund a post?

  3. I am also an aspiring AST. The future role of AST's is unclear. The new government are looking to pull all AST and Excellent teachers under one title and pay scale.... 'Lead Practitioner'.
