The advice note is designed to help our teacher members understand their entitlements and what to do if they have concerns about workload.

All teachers in NI should have been provided with an agreed time budget by 31 October 2020. 

Time budgets are a key part of the 2020 pay and workload agreement where all parties agree to a series of measures to address teacher concerns about workload and accountability.

We have produced a directed time budget spreadsheet calculator to help you ensure that all directed time, and your duties, are included in the maximum 195 days and 1265 hours that you are contracted to work.

We have also produced a school calendar calculator.
