Change of role in the light of the cuts?

Discussion in 'Heads of department' started by whyamidoingthis, Jan 31, 2011.

  1. As a manager of a specialism I find that a lot of my role has disappeared as the funding for the cuts kicks in. I have a permananent contract but wonder what will be found for me to do to justify my salary as the rug is pulled from under me! Is anyone else in the same situation?
     
  2. In fact I have just been told that I am going back to pretty much a full timetable from 40% despite being on the SMT so have said that they can't have it both ways - either I have leadership responsibilities (I had others as well as the specialism) or I am a classroom teacher but I can't do both. (big secondary) . Is there noone else out there who is experiencing the same thing at the moment?

    Are you currently paid on the Leadership Spine? I assume you are, based on the fact that you are SLT.
    I would think it extremely unlikely that your HT could simply move you back to a mainscale teaching post without due process...it would essentially mean that you are being made redundant, or at least demoted.
    Consult your union immediately!
