We had our department meeting today and an item on the agenda was next years budget. it is not good. Food Technology £650 Product Design £450 Construction £450. I teach product design and last year I had £750 (roughly £1 per pupil) and i struggled last year. I cannot see how I can continue running the course with so little money. I will also have to pay roughly £300 in photocopying. I have spoken to the HOD and she agrees that this is just ridiculous. she had just moved from a school where he dept. budget was £12,000. does anyone have any suggestions how i can bring money in to the department and also make SLT take note and that we need more funding? please help. cheers.
