Hello all, I'm new to the forums but I have a sticky situation and I need some advice. I am a Canadian-trained teacher currently working at an Academy. I have not started the OTT course that the DfES requires as I am still in my school's probation period. My fiance has just been recruited for a job overseas to start mid-April. When I started at my school, I signed an offer that stated that I would be on probation for 6 months and that during that time, either party could terminate employment with 6 weeks notice, I have asked for a copy of this offer (for legitimate tax purposes in Canada) but the business manager has no record of it. The principal's PA left over the summer and some things were misplaced in the meantime. I have not signed my permanent contract yet. Another teacher here seems to think that I would be held to the school's policy of giving a term's notice, even though I have not signed a contract. I haven't talked to the head yet, waiting to get his contract signed first, but I would like to know my rights before I do. Any thoughts?
