Professional Dilemma of the highest order. Having been in the TA for eight glorious years, most of that as a student (tried avoiding real work for as long as possible!) or as a temp, which has meant **** - I mean 'annual' - camps have never been a problem. However, am now gonna be a teacher in September and don't know what to do about annual camp - especially as unit have moved traditional 'summer' camp to autumn For those of you who are teachers and TA sod-yers, how do you deal with camp? As it's going to be my NQT year, and first year in teaching post, don't think I can push my luck and ask for a couple of weeks off in first term. And, as luck would have it, the Army believe in having the summer off too, so I can't even go on a course over the summer hols... NEED ADVICE!!! PRETTY PLEASE!!!
