I’m glad ma non troppo mentioned the Teachers’ Voices panel - I find it totally pointless and annoying.
Often badly phrased questions - that seem to be put together by a work-experience team.
I have felt for a very long time that the AB appointments system needs a drastic rethink. Plus the fact that the exam comments sheet is becoming more and more irrelevant, with a series of formulaic remarks - I do wonder what the future is, and whether the system will continue to be relevant.
I’m certainly finding that the most enjoyable (and often the most productive) terms are when I have no exam candidates.
I so agree with all of this, especially the last sentence. The Teachers' Voices has felt like a bit of a damp squib overall with some odd questions, and there is a curiously lifeless feel to the whole thing. It would be good if it could be a bit more interactive with some feedback more specifically about whether any of the ideas and opinions have been used. Otherwise it does feel like a bit of a tick-box exercise.
