Hi, I'm an NQT and I may soon be dismissed because of gross misconduct, although my union rep says that this would be very harsh. The county personnel lady said a hearing with the governors usually results in dismissal. What is the likelihood of be being able to attain a job in September if I am dismissed? Will the reasons of my previous dismissal soften the blow (ie. I can prove I was told to do some thing fraudulent by a more senior member of staff and through duress and naivety, I did it). Thanks for your time and rest assured I have looked at other forum posts but this seems to be a topic which seldom gets much attention. Thanks!
