    I was interviewed for a job I really like yesterday and the school will offer me a fixed term one year contract. I thought I was being interviewed for a permanent position as there is nothing about fixed term on the advert. Is this usual due to school budgets etc? A school I applied to in January was offering a one year probationary period. Don't know what to do.

    Even if it said permanent in the advert (Did it?) they can still decide to go for fixed term.
    Yes, usually. Hard times at the moment.
    A bird in the hand . . . would you be on JSA otherwise?
    Best wishes
