Unemployed Teachers sign now

To: The Right Hon Ruth Kelly, Minister for Education.

Members of Her Majesty's Government.

We, the undersigned, being qualified teachers and others with alink to education, hereby wish to register a protest.

We include some teachers who have found it increasingly difficult tofind jobs in the current market. So far advice given by your office hasnot been satisfactory and we demand some more concrete answers as towhy the labour situation in education is in the state it is in.

Those of us who have found positions in schools would like to show oursupport for this cause.

The creation of PPA time has not led to the expected creation of more teaching jobs but has created a fleet of TAs standing in as "teachers". Also the introduction of Cover Supervisors has pushed many supply teachers out of jobs.

The four term rule for NQTs on supply is also under question. With the current situation not being resolved we ask that the system used in Wales is considered for use in the UK where NQTs can work as supply teachers for five years rather than only four terms.

Yet despite this training places are on the increase with no suggestion of more jobs becoming available.

We are asking for comprehensive answers as to why the education labour system is in the state it is in.
