My 16 months of supply allowance has run out. I've successfully applied to 2 local authorities in my area for extensions. I've been offered a lot of work in another neighbouring authority, which I have been unable to accept as I haven't got an extension from them yet. I've finally tracked down the correct person who deals with this. They have sent me an e-mail stating that if they grant an extension I will only be able to work in their local authority and will not be able to apply for extensions in any other local authority. I personally think this is rubbish, but wondered how I go about checking the validity of this. All the guidance I have read has stated that you apply to each local authority individually for an extension, but the nature of supply work is that you are likely to work in different local authorities. The form to apply for the extension also wants me to give details of the last 20 jobs I have applied for. This seems excessive to me - why do they need this info?
