Is it my job to arrange work placements?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by Mysti, Jan 30, 2012.

  1. Hello

    I think I may have unwittingly agreed to something that I should not have.

    I am at a new school/6th form and my new line manager has put down, with my agreement, although I thought about it afterwards.... duh!, to arrange placements for about 25 new students for September. It is a new course, HSC BTEC and so have to make new contacts but I feel now that actually that shouldnt be my job, its an admin job. Am I right?

    On top of this, the current students on the CCLD course, she wants me to organise their placements, and inform, by writing a letter to the schools about students needing to study another age group and so wants me to organise that too. Surely I shouldnt be doing that as well?
    There is a work placement officer allocated to the school but apprently shes too busy.

    Please please advise.

    The 24 tasks a teacher should not undertake as part of the workload agreement says
    12. Administration of work experience (teachers may still need to select placements and support pupils by advice or visits).
