Is there a problem with this? Interview issue

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by transilvanian, May 13, 2011.

  1. Does it appear that someone was already chosen for the job before the ad went out? Did you apply? If it was you, it would be reasonable to write a letter of complaint to the governing body and request a response.

    Parity is essential
  3. Parity is essential but so what? Isn't it just a case of hard luck on those NQTs who didnt apply

    Who were instructed by the school not to apply, according to you.

  5. I agree with you. Basically the school put out a very narrow advert ( year group specific end of KS2 SATs experience, temporary and hardly anyone applied. There was never going to be that many that fitted the bill. So the NQT either didn't read the advert or just chanced her luck either way she got an interview and others didn't.
    Ethically it is not appropriate but in terms of any employment law is it an issue?
