Do teaching vacancies have to be advertised?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by salix, Apr 28, 2011.

  1. As one of several teachers on a temporary contract, hypothetically, could I be offered a permanent contract or have my contract extended another year, without having to be interviewed, and without having the new vacancy advertised to the other temporary teachers? Or would the school be obliged to advertise the post and interview interested parties?

    They can appoint without advertising at all; however, school policy may stipulate that posts be advertised.

    Interesting. I though that in this scenario they had to advertise, but it could be internally only.

    Nope! No need at all, legally. Not internally or externally.

    But they may choose, as a school, to always advertise.

    My understanding is that only head/deputy posts have to be advertised. I was interviewed for a temporary post last year which is now being made permanent without being readvertised. Ask your head about it. If you're on a temp contract, you're perfectly entitled to have a is my contract likely to be extended chat. Make a big deal about how much you love your current job but that you need to know as other jobs are beginning to be advertised and if you do need to find a new job, now is the time to start. Good luck!
