One of the staff in my department ( I am Subject Leader ) has booked himself on a course provided by exam board without checking with me first. I also wanted /needed to go on this course but exam board won't allow more than one person per school . I took this up with my Line Manager and he has ruled against me , saying I must let that member of staff go. I feel he has really undermined me as subject leader/head of department and I simply don't know how to handle this . Any ideas ?
