soulbury - centrally employed staff - is this legai

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by littlemissdotty, Jan 15, 2011.

  1. I would really appreciate any advice. Briefly, and without too much detail for obvious reasons, I am a centrally funded specialist teacher (with a mandatory qualifaication in my specialist field). i work with individual children in schools. I support them, assess them, train staff regarding their specific problem, write reports and provide educational advice for statementing. I believe I fulfill the role of a teacher.
    I've been informed that I am to be moved onto soulbury. Pay hasnt been discussed yet but it wiill impact on my working year and pension (I have nearly 20 years in the tps). This is being rushed through. If I refuse to move onto solbury, am I making myself redundant??. `Can I be employed to do exactly the same job but on worse T &C??
    So, is this right, legal etc, what's the experience of other specialist centrally funded staff around the counrty? What is the best way to challenge it.?
    I've got a few ideas, but I would really appreciate the benefit of other peoples wisdom.
    By the way, we have full union support.

    Your situation is not unusual. This type move has been going on for some time in many LA's.
    Do you at the present have to be a member of the GTC ? therefore you are teaching. Will you still be a member of GTC,when they attempt to move you to Soulbury.?If you are thus still teaching you cannot be put on to Soulbury.If they stop you doing any teaching then you will have to go on to Solbury.
