    are there any advantages?

    if it's LA as opposed to an Academy, the School will almost certainly follow Burgundy Book Terms and Conditions whereas Academies are free to set their own payscale, Curriculum and Terms & Conditions. And those may be less favourable than you'd expect from an LA School.

    I do hope you are soon in teaching - I can't wait to hear all about it (discretely) in your future posts.

    I have worked for councils and for academies. There are pros and cons for both, but on the whole I prefer councils because the pay and conditions are much clearer and the unions have won a few hard fought battles with them to give teachers fair pay and working conditions.
