I do hope you can help me. I am just a few months into my training contract and things have been going well, but my school has just notified us that they are in financial difficulties and are going to be making redundancies. I feel really vulnerable as I am one of the last in. But how will I get another school to take me on for the rest of this year, as my subject is not a high-demand one, and everything was going really well here. Vacancies were filled back in the autumn, like my one was. I am concerned that I have been here only a few months I will have no redundancy rights, but I am wondering if my teaching contract itself bestows any rights which could keep me here till my year is up? The Head must have known this catastrophe was on the cards when he placed me under enormous pressure to accept the job there and then. I turned down another similar job to come here, and now this has happened. I feel cheated, tricked, and that my career has been ruined before it has even got off to a proper start. Please help!
