Good news for the paper boy
However, six resignation dates would increase disruption and the need to cover classes when colleagues get jobs close to a resignation date. This would create more headaches for leaders and timetablers.
I am, however, sure my paper boy would appreciate a six-term year if it led to a more even spread of vacancies across the academic year; it must be a nightmare to deliver The TES in April with all the extra job sections.
