Hi all Looks like I may be made surplus (3 years permanent service-least in dept.) and the way things are I am wondering if redundancy is a real possibility next session. I think that there is the potential for maybe 30 teachers in the authority being made surplus in my subject. If a teacher is made redundant by an authority can they then advertise posts? accept supply registrations? accept probationers (are they supernumery?) And for how long after being made redundant could a teacher challenge the authority on these points? Also wondering if anyone has ever experienced a colleague/friend etc. being made redundant...for how long were they kept as perm. supply etc? Sorry if this is a bit of a ramble just a bit shocked and *** off about today's news!
