Further to the news published on Friday last week by OnTheWight about the considerable job losses at Cowes Enterprise College under consultation, further information comes to light.
Yesterday (Monday), Rachael Fidler, Chair of the Cowes Enterprise College Governing Body, confirmed the re-structuring.
OnTheWight is now able to share the restructuring documents (below) given to staff last week. They reveal exactly where the job cuts will be made.
Rachael Fidler told OnTheWight,
In terms of staff numbers, the proposed restructure we are consulting on includes a roles reduction in the College of teaching staff from 70 to 65 and support staff from 80 to 54.
The proposed restructure does include some changes to roles and responsibilities with related amendments to grading. There are no proposed blanket pay cuts. We are aiming to achieve most of these through natural or voluntary movement and we are putting in every effort to reduce the pressure on staff.
The restructure plan
As you can see from the scans/spreadsheet below, the restructuring is significant, with some teachers having to take on extra responsibility.
Over 30% of support staff will lose their jobs in the restructure, as well as others having to take a pay cut, moving from Scale 4 to Scale 1. Details of the National Joint Council (NJC) payscales are embedded below.
As the scans of the restructuring document may be difficult to read for some, we’ve put the information into a spreadsheet for ease of reading.
Our thoughts are with the staff who will be affected by the restructure.
