PRIVATE COMPANIES INSISTING ON QTS WHEN FILLING MENTOR/TUTOR ROLES

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by pangar, Nov 30, 2011.

  1. Having watched aghast as the plague of Classroom Supervisors and HLTAs has put more and more specialist teachers out of work and bemoned the downgarding of roles such as JOY and LST, I now note that trend whereby private companies are insisting that desperate teachers sign contracts where they must work for longer for significantly less. Indeed, I have even heard it suggested that a condition of being offered a Mentor/Tutor post was that they applicant should reactivate their GTC registration. Is this legal? Why aren't the unions doing something about it? Will the TES ever deign to address such latter day indentured servitude?
