Job Share Query!

Discussion in 'Scotland - education news' started by mazzypann, Mar 31, 2011.

  1. hi, Just wondered that if you have job share post in a school and your job share partner leaves does the other "job share" person get offered the post full time or does it get advertised?

    I think it will depend on the LA. One I know of will fill any vacancy with a last year's probationer.
  3. Hi there
    I'm a job-share teacher with Glasgow City Council, and when my job-share partner left 2 years ago I was not offered her hours.
  4. Hi, my job-share partner left last year. I expected to be offered the other half of the post but when I enquired with LA was told that yes, under normal circumstances, existing partners are usually offered the post in the first instance, but as there are so many surplus teachers I would not be given the post, nor would it be advertised. Instead supply cover has been used. I guess it's down to the LA's interpretation of the term 'normal circumstances'. If or when 'normality' ever resumes then I will fight for the other half of my post, as my contract states should be offered to me.
