I have commenced a job, which involves a TLR. My main subject area was mentioned in the advert and I thought the TLR would relate to that. I have no JD yet. Now, I have been asked to also lead an area in which I have no specialism ( nor interest beyond teaching it). I had even asked for support in it. When I raised this, I was told I had been asked because of the TLR and leading it would help me. I have led lots of PD over the years,in a few subjects, even speaking at coordinators’ meetings. However, the thought of leading in an area where I have no expertise (and being asked questions I cannot answer) - the thought of spending hours on something in which I really am not interested on top of my up to 60 hour week-feels like the last straw. Do I have any say in this, or is it just under the category of any reasonable direction from the HT? Do I just have to try to front it out and get on with it?
