In my last school they cut both secretaries hours and then got in a girl on the job bridge scheme. There was nothing the two existing secretaries could do as the Principal said the girl on the job bridge scheme was not doing work that the other two had been doing.

They also got in a trainee lab technician. She was very good but I feel she was taken advantage of under the scheme as there are only a handful of schools in the whole country who employ lab technicians and therefore she was being trained for a job that didn't exist.

These are just my own experiences with job bridge but it would be interesting to see if these experiences are replicated around the country.

It's important to highlight these injustices and thanks to you and the Unions for doing so.
