Without wanting to go into too many details (for fear of being identified) should I just accept that, as I'm part-time, my career is pretty much over? I work 0.6 (three full days a week) - the dept I'm in is quite 'old' as in the other staff are fast approaching retirement. When drawing up timetables for each academic year I'm given majority KS3 classes, not an issue at all, and if I'm lucky the odd KS4 or 5 lesson. This has been the situation for the past three years. I am worried that if I tried to get a job in another school I would be virtually unemployable based on the number of years taugh (nearly a decade so fairly high up on the pay scale) and my recent lack of exam class access/results. Added to this - I find out today I'm being denied training within the dept (sorted by HoD) because I'm part-time. Is this normal and to be expected?! Thank you.
