Staffing: Remodelling the Workforce: Guidance (June 2004)

In January 2003 an agreement was reached between LEAs (representing the employers in community and voluntary controlled schools) and most of the teaching unions. Accordingly, Catholic voluntary aided governing bodies are NOT a party to the national agreement which, as it stands, does not contain the provisions necessary to safeguard the Catholic character of our schools. The National Remodelling Team has recently started consulting with the Catholic Education Service, and it is to be hoped that this will result in an agreement which will be appropriate to the needs of Catholic Schools. In the mean time, governing bodies of Catholic schools should be very cautious about introducing any irreversible changes to the structure of the workforce pending the outcome of those negotiations.
