Am taking up a HOD History post next year (for the first time) but am also going to be responsible for introducing a new Government and Politics AS/A2 course as well. This is a new Pol. Dept which is going to need all necessary resources etc but doesn't result in a pay rise! HOD History should be TLR2b (know from current HOD) so this common practice and what are your experiances? Also, how much should a post-16 Dept receive as goes a budget? SMT are very closed on this issue.
