"Gained time" and cover

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by smithfam, Jul 7, 2011.

  1. Tried posting this on "rarely cover" but people presumably rarely have problems with cover so trying this forum instead!
    <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="post">I am employed on a permanent part time contract to teach Years12 and 13 only. Since the Year 13s have left I have been asked to cover classes in the lower school 2/3 times a week for staff illness absence/ staff called to meetings. I do not have QTS and do not teach a national curriculum subject. Is this allowed?
    </td></tr></table>

    I'd ask on Pay and Conditions.
    It sounds a bit iffy to me, but the Head can deploy you wherever they see fit and gained time is directable....but I was under the impression that it should <u>not </u>be used for cover except under RC rules.
    Someone on P&C will give you chapter and verse, I am sure!
     
  3. Result .... many thanks henriette ... will do!
