What do you class as parking incorrectly?​Parking fines are issued when people park in an irresponsible way that either restricts parking for someone else, or represents a danger to safety (for example by blocking access routes for emergency services). Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues. Fines will also be issued if a parking permit or pay and display ticket is not clearly displayed, or if someone parks in a car sharing space before 11am. <br>LTU Authoring

Is it possible to teach in primary schools if you have trained in a secondary (and vice-versa)Is it possible to teach in primary schools if you have trained in a secondary (and vice-versa)​Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is required to teach in any maintained school (or non-maintained special school) in England, but in theory it is possible with QTS to teach any age range (5-16) and subject. In practice, it is for each school to decide whether an individual has sufficient subject knowledge or experience of the age group to be appointed to any specific position. It may be more feasible in areas with recruitment difficulties and/or in shortage subjects, and undertaking additional subject study may improve the chances.<br><br>Teachers with QTS are also allowed to teach in the post-compulsory sector i.e. further education and sixth form colleges.<br>LTU Authoring
