How does secondment work? I've seen a job that's also offered as a secondment- only a years post- but really interesting. It's working with the new government mental health support teams as a project manager. Sounds really interesting. However as a year 6 teacher and AH I doubt I can go on secondment. It states a start of March 1st. How does it work in terms of money for school? Is there any kind of financial benefit that may sway her decision? The secondment pays a little less than I'm on now- not much. Also it's cross LEA, it would be working with a neighbouring educational authority. Husband thinks I should just apply even if not on secondment basis and give 3 months notice if successful. Either way it's not ideal being in y6 but don't want to miss an opportunity.
