Wiltshire teachers braced for redundancy

Wiltshire teachers braced for redundancy

Professionals in the education sector in one area of the south of England are set to require expert redundancy advice in the near future, it has emerged.

According to the Gazette and Herald, Dr Patrick Hazlewood, headteacher at St John's in Marlborough, has admitted his school has no option but to implement job cuts over the coming years.

Dr Hazlewood told the news source that all schools are facing severe budget reductions from the government and his institution is set to have to deal with a five per cent cut annually for the next three years.

The 130 teachers at the school have been informed that a meeting will be held next Monday (February 20th) where the possibility of staff reductions will be discussed.

Earlier this week (February 13th), the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development indicated that redundancies are set to grow in the private sector in the first quarter of 2012.
