We’ve just been given our timetables for next year, and the hours we have been allocated to teach Btec level 3 are only 75% of the hours recommended by the exam board. We don’t think we can finish teaching our units in this time. The head of department and deputy head are totally dismissive of our concerns, but neither of them teach Btec. Other managers have suggested all the Btec teachers get together and protest, but we are not really sure who else teaches Btec in other departments. Has anyone else had to teach Btec in less hours? How did you get on?
