Following the recent ballot (where around only 12000 EIS members voted to accept the proposals) I wonder how the EIS (and other unions) intend to monitor the deal. The teacher number thingy will be checked through the September census. More pressing is the "guarantee" of posts to apply for for NQTs. From information received on the grapevine various LAs are approaching this in a variety of dubious ways ranging from fixed term one year contracts to putting NQTs on the supply list - neither of which actually reflects the wording of the deal (such as it is). "sufficient teaching posts available for all probationers to apply for who achieve Standard for Full Registration in summer 2011 (i.e. successfully complete their probation)" At which point does this pledge get fulfilled and who is monitoring it? How many jobs should be available...clearly it should be in excess of probationer numbers.
