Is it for secondary?

Fairenuff Tue 19-Nov-13 21:42:31

Well, that's acadamies for you.

Bradsplit Tue 19-Nov-13 21:43:38

Have you a web link ?

OrlandoWoolf Tue 19-Nov-13 21:44:44

No naming and shaming. But you'll see the salary is term time only grin

Cutteduppumpkin Tue 19-Nov-13 21:44:50

Well it's better paid (and more qualified) than some cover supervisors I know.

gordyslovesheep Tue 19-Nov-13 21:45:24

there you go then - Gove's dream realised - who needs qualified, trained and experienced teachers - and old fool can do it <rolls eyes>

mercibucket Tue 19-Nov-13 21:45:26

is this for real? scary

freezation Tue 19-Nov-13 21:45:57

This just shits on my 2 years of A-levels and 5 years of degree and post-grad to become a teacher...

Bradsplit Tue 19-Nov-13 21:46:17

If I google it will I find if ?

Bradsplit Tue 19-Nov-13 21:46:47

Leeds ?!

Philoslothy Tue 19-Nov-13 21:47:17

It students do not have a cover supervisor every lesson.

I would be furious if my child's maths teacher only needed a C grade in maths.

This is what happens when you start to dismantle the teaching profession

Hassled Tue 19-Nov-13 21:47:25

You can almost feel the standards rising from here.

OrlandoWoolf Tue 19-Nov-13 21:48:01

Might be up North grin

soverylucky Tue 19-Nov-13 21:48:21

They don't even want a-level???????

OrlandoWoolf Tue 19-Nov-13 21:49:30

I can't even believe the salary. That is going to reduced as it is Term time only.

nennypops Tue 19-Nov-13 21:49:38

Good grief. They don't even want A Level Maths, let alone a teaching qualification? I'd qualify for that job, and I definitely wouldn't be impressed if I discovered that my dc were being taught by someone with my level of Maths skills.

If this is a secondary then that is awful, if it were a school at which I had a child I would be withdrawing them.

I thought that an unqualified teacher was someone who hadn't completed a PGCE or similar. Don't they still need a degree in their subject?

Fairenuff Tue 19-Nov-13 21:51:31

It's no different to how private schools have been for years.

wimblehorse Tue 19-Nov-13 21:52:44

Jesus.
Even teaching yr 8 maths you would want someone with more depth of knowledge than a C at GCSE. That's appalling shock

soverylucky Tue 19-Nov-13 21:53:59

I don't know a private school that would employ a Maths teacher who did not have a degree in Maths. Unqualified teacher, yes - but not such low academic qualifications.

noblegiraffe Tue 19-Nov-13 21:54:17

I bet a million pounds private schools don't hire maths teachers with only 4 GCSEs.

Unqualified was supposed to mean no QTS, not not enough GCSEs to get into 6th form!
