I have a friend that is working as a peri music teacher. She has been asked this year to take on extra lessons, GCSE Music and A Level Music Tech. She is being paid as a peri and treated as a full time teacher. I think the school are taking her for granted and not understanding her role. She wants to teach the GCSE and the A Level but as an unqualified teacher she is finding this whole situation unmanageable. Is this common?
