Employment and redundancy affected by Comprehensive Spending Review?

Employment and redundancy affected by Comprehensive Spending Review?

Employment and redundancy in the teaching profession could be affected by the government's forthcoming Comprehensive Spending Review.

This is according to Debbie Barnes, assistant director of children's services with Lincolnshire County Council, who noted that the budget for 2010-11 was increased as the authority was aware of school closures, which could lead to staff reductions, the Lincolnshire Echo reports.

And the news source noted that redundancy payments for teachers in the region totalled £2.12 million in the last half year - more than £100,000 over the budget for the whole 12 months.

"School budgets are under a lot of pressure. Teachers will be looking anxious on October 20th following the Comprehensive Spending Review," said Bev Marshall, regional officer for the National Union of Teachers Yorkshire and Midland.

The four-year public spending plan is to be set out on the aforementioned date, allocating resources across all government departments. It is then these specific divisions' responsibilities to manage and distribute funds.
