Sussex teachers facing redundancy

Sussex teachers facing redundancy

Dozens of teachers in Sussex could be set to lose their positions through redundancy.

Consultations are taking place between county officials and the National Union of Teachers as job losses are planned for a number of schools, the Argus reports.

As learning establishments strive to bring their budgets under control, front-line staff are under threat of being made redundant.

Two teachers at Chatsmore Catholic High School in Worthing have already taken voluntary redundancy.

It comes as bodies in Sussex are coming to terms with a 23 per cent cut in their funding in 2011, from £70 million to £43 million.

"Part of the decrease will be due to money being diverted directly to academy schools, who do not receive their money from local authorities," the news provider stated.

It comes after the Glasgow Evening Times announced that 50 service workers in North Lanarkshire are facing redundancy as cash-strapped Comet lays off staff.
