Teacher entitlement

Not really ICT but definitely schools related …

The new DCSF release explains the legislation now going through to secure workforce reforms for teachers.  SOme of the reforms are:

• Since September 2003: teachers should not routinely be required to carry out clerical or administrative tasks; teachers with leadership and management responsibilities have been entitled to time in which to carry out those duties; and head teachers have needed to take into account the work-life balance of their teaching staff.

• Since September 2004: teachers should not have been required to carry out more than 38 hours a year of cover for absent colleagues.

• Since September 2005: teachers have been entitled to at least 10 per cent of their timetabled teaching time for planning, preparation and assessment; teachers should not have been required to invigilate external exams; and head teachers have been entitled to Dedicated Headship Time.
