A few years ago I was told I had to attend Inset, but if it wasnt on a day I work I wouldn't be paid. I fought this decision and was paid. I'm at the same school with a new head teacher and a similar situation has arose. My HT is happy for me to not attend Inset if its on a non working day BUT if I do go I wont be paid... Today I would have missed out on fire safety, child protection, literacy and Manual handling training. There is no provision for the part timers to "catch up" on what they have missed other than viewing power points in their own time. I also have been asked to lead and attend staff meetings on non working days. I am fine with coming in for parents meetings, trips, sports days unpaid as I am part of the school community but I Don't see that bits fair for us to not be included I training... What happens elsewhere?
