Deputising for head of dept as deputy head dept

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by chezza01, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. hi
    have a question, i am currently deputy head dept and have been in post for a little under a year. Head dept will be taking maternity next academic year.
    Will an acting head dept post be advertised, or, is it within my role to deputise for him? if so will TLR go up or stay as is?
    does anyone have experience of this

    When my HOD took paternity leave, I was acting head of department - however that was obviously a lot shorter than most maternity leave.
    I imagine it would depend. I think possibly if a member of the senior management team was experienced they may rely on them, especially if a core subject, but then again they may not. I doubt they'd get anyone external.
    Have you asked? x
