1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Tomorrow, at 1:30pm, I will attend an interview in an attempt to secure my own job.
    I will be applying for an as yet only partially specified job, in a company of indeterminate size, delivering on yet to be won contracts.

    I know that I will be required to use any or all of my careers guidance, organisation, and self-management skills, across contracts, in the planned new 'All-Age' Guidance Service, or under the new arrangements for working in schools. I will also be expected to involve myself in Marketing and Business Development.

    Given my present role, I could be also be working under the as yet undeclared rules for supporting Special Needs kids, which will become clear ( :rolleyes:) if the Green Paper planned for last Autumn ever appears.

    As yet there is no funding for schools to secure Careers Guidance, but they must secure it.

    The recently published education white paper is seriously lacking in detail

    etc.,etc. blah blah.

    It's reassuring that our new Govt. has such a firm grip on policy and such a clear vision for the future. :D

    So, no pressure then. :)

    I hope I've stared long enough into my crystal ball......

    I know some will be gleefully waiting to see if I crash and burn. I'd like to think most would wish me well.

    but an internet record shop/forum , isnt an appropriate place for what you have written , I'd suggest the wife and family and friends would be far better. Good luck.... Jon

    I wish you well but for goodness sake talk like you love the new set up and embrace the virtues of value add.

    If you don't, then welcome to the retirement club.

    I hope not. It does sound one hell of a shambles. Be positive and good luck.

    Good luck Mull.
    With any luck Gove is on borrowed time. He's made too many errors that he's humiliatingly had to backtrack on. You never know we may get an education secretary who is aware the 20th century happened.

    Speak from your heart, and with a little luck you should be in with a fighting chance many years ago I succoured the job of a life time with the Uni of Brighton by doing just that, I thought that I had totally fluffed it by speaking as I thought ,but no those on the interview panel thought other wise, and I enjoyed nearly 20 years of not a job, but a exhilarating experience( but low paid) that I wouldn't have missed for the world
    The very best of luck

    Mull - I think you are a top bloke, so good luck.
    Please go in with a positive attitude though!

    I think we'd best leave 'value add' for another day. But I thank you for your good wishes.

    YES IT IS.. This is called 'off Topic' and therefore is fine..also no comma after 'forum' and you missed the apostrophe from isn't.

    'but' should start with a capital too.

    See me after school.:p

    From my own experience the decision will have already been made. Without doubt, go into the interview with a positive attitude (unless you want the redundancy!).

    Good luck.

    I wnet through this process a while a go, did the interview stuff, secured the position (well retained my thencurrent position, under a different title), but did not feel the same about the organisation afterwards, for making me do that, so asked for redundancy within 18 months. Best thing I did career-wise for many years.

    I wish you luck.
