Hello I'm currently on a temporary 1 year contract ending August 31st 2011. I asked my head what the situation is with my job and he said that he is going to have to put the job up to be advertised for next year and it will be another year contract. Is this normal? I am now looking to apply for other jobs although most in the area are also fixed year contracts. The post at my current school hasn;t been advertised yet, but i will apply when it is. If I applied for it and got another fixed year contract at my current school, does it then become permanent becasue at the end I will have worked for 2 years? Many thanks in advance.
