Re: Length of maternity leave

I'm a first year and my baby is due in July, I'm planning on a full year, the course have just told me to let them know how much I want and they'll do me an individualised plan based on what I say. I think for me the timing has worked out well though as I will finish the first year's teaching before...

Hi all, Question about the WMS III assessment- I`m reassessing someone tomorrow- the first one was done 3 years ago, I have a copy of the report but it's very brief and doesn't state whether the optional sub tests were completed or not. The general gist was that there weren't any clinical problems a...

Unite or Unison?

Hi all, I`m a current first year and some recent issues with our trust have made me feel I probably should join a union, just in case....! I`m a bit confused as to the differences between Unite and Unison? Which one are most people part of? Also the monthly fees do seem quite high to me, do people f...

Re: New trust wanting bank statements and birth certificates

Hi all, Just to say I did end up sending in the documents, though when I went into my bank for a statement the assistant was very understanding and helpful in printing me a statement that had the bare minimum of information i.e. just a single deposit transaction which made me feel slightly more in c...

Re: New trust wanting bank statements and birth certificates

Thank you eponymous85, I do feel in a bit of a disempowered posistion at this stage and feel like I'm going against my principles a bit but at the same time very reluctant to be a difficult customer!

Re: New trust wanting bank statements and birth certificates

Hi all, Thank you for your replies, glad it's not just me who thinks it's a little strange. DBS forms have already gone off for processing so its not for that. I did write another very polite email to the HR person asking if they could tell me why it's standard procedure for the trust and why these ...

Is anyone else having difficulties accessing the e-learning? I've had to email their support team as it keeps telling me the log in details are incorrect?
