Was never good at Maths but isnt 2020 - 8 years away. Whats your problem with that?
They won't be able to tell you because they don't know! However, that does vary by school. I work in an SCE school and our withdrawal date changes every week and on who you speak to - 2 years, 15 years, 6 months. The contracts have changed to fixed-term I believe? They are trying to rein in the benefits somewhat but I believe the package is still very competitive.
Because it says total withdrawl by 2020. l wouldn't think they are going to close all the schools at once, I would think it is to be gradual from different areas. So I was asking if there was any area targeted for the first wave. It's not just maths it's common sense. Also its headship and I certainly don't want to be the new head of a school that is to close in 2 or 3 years , what a morale booster...welcome to your new school and here is the timetable for closure!!! It would also mean re-locating my family. This is a life style change for us and needs to be a long term positive experience. I certainly don't want to be coming back to the UK in a few years.
The ad says permenant contract. It would be a dream come true and as for money !!! same size school as I am head of now but when I worked it out it was nearly half again what I am on now and part of that is tax free I believe. It is everything I want, abroad and with the MOD, I believe in our forces and am dedicated to my job. I simply don't want to be in a closure situation as soon as I get there or in the near future....8-10 I could live with especially if the promise of a re-location upon closure is actually possible.
