If you search the site for TUPE you will receive all (and more) the answers you require.

I am also under the Derby BSF rollout.
Have you heard any further details of the meeting besides it being on Sept 12th?
Such as location and time of the meeting.
Have any of your senior management and Head of ICT been disappearing to BSF meetings that we haven't heard about and do you have any details as to what's been said at these meetings.
BTW I'm at Lees Brook School in derby. Where are you based?

all i know and dont quote me is that if your school dont go ahead with it then your funding pull be plugged and that you wont be working for the school you will be working for your local council but im not sure about if they move you around i think thats what this meeting is for on the 12th at our school is going to be about

Hi Kevin & Siuko,
I'm at Murray Park and have been told the meeting will probably be at Derby College. Don't think we will told too much just an outline of the process. The real information will probably come once a contact has been signed - Oct 2010?. Did you get the briefing letter - this contains a few snippets of info? Hope that helps

Please look at the BSF threads - they will give you all the info you need about what BSF means to a school and what is likely to happen
11th July 2008, 12:30 PM #9
I have PM'd you to ask if you could send me the briefing paper you mentioned.

good for you
good for you, i'm not either, i am going to ask for redundancy. I'd rather go find employment with a company that i want to work for, rather than one i am forced to work for.
It is a shame ict techs are regarded as expendable by schools and the government, but it just shows how little they know or care

You cant actually ask for redundancy as far as i am aware. If you choose not to take the job with the managed service, you are in effect resigning.

Have to agree with 'Red' marco84 here. You're effectively handing in your notice if you don't accept the TUPE process. No ifs, no buts.

humm....yea but surely if i did not want apart of this and say just wanted to stay where i am under the guidence of the school then they cant do anything they have no right.....the only thing i'd think the goverment / lea could do is put preasure on the school into letting me go and they cant cus they have no reason to let me go and if they tried then that would be unfair dismisal wouldn't it

Sorry to disappoint - if you refuse to transfer you will have handed your notice in.

You can refuse to work for the new employer. You must let your current or prospective employer know that you object to the transfer. You'll be regarded as having resigned and will have no right to claim unfair dismissal or to a redundancy payment.
