Cutting school technicians will impact heavily on practical lessons
As a technician, one of the categories of staff affected by the proposed cuts to support staff in Fife schools, I believe that the proposed staffing plan will impact badly on all departments in schools, but particularly on the practical subjects, which are those that most need technician support – they cannot deliver the curriculum without us! In recent years our workload has continued to increase in both quantity and complexity, without a corresponding increase in numbers. How will the teachers cope with the lack of support caused by a cut in technician numbers, and with the extra work they will have to do, and what will the impact be on the pupils’ learning?
