    Dismiss Notice

Contract confusion

    I was offered a temporary 1 year contract last April at a secondary school. When I received my contract it said "Permanent Instructor: Full time". I though they reverted back to permanent like the original advertisement.

    Now a few senior members of my department are telling me my job will be re advertised soon.

    What should I do?

    Also I am an instructor, as I wait for my QTLS

    Are you a member of a Union?

    Your first port of call must be them.

    However, the bad news is that until you have at least 2 years' continuous employment with the same employer, you can be dismissed very easily, as long as you are given your contractual notice.

    Whether your contract is permanent or not.


    By dismissal, I mean that they can advertise your position and give it to someone else. The one issue here is the notice that they have to give you. Read your contract for this.

    I'm sorry not to give you happier news.

    Best wishes
