Since i qualified some 10 years ago I have found FE posts are increasingly point 6 or point 4 or a percentage. Hours in terms of many courses have been cut and Colleges / Schools / Academies and 6th Forms are employing on an ad hoc basis to fit random contact hours. Such as .6 over 4 days : 2 hours Monday, so many on Tuesday full day Wednesday and half day Friday. sometimes requiring highly qualified, highly trained highly skilled and experienced teachers to contract for 5 hours a day one day a week. is this OK? I mean I'm guessing there are a lot of people looking to do part time work around families or returning to work. The viability though of teaching / lecturing in FE seems to be less and less feasible.
