What's your teaching load like? We've had timetables today (TODAY- can't get over how disorganised it's been this year) and I have more this year than last. A colleague and I were discussing it and I wondered if actually we've been a bit spoiled in previous years. I will be teaching 40/50 in a 2 week timetable.

Palelpink- 10 hours per week?

29/40. 3 of the 11 non contacts are set aside for curriculum core team meetings so 8 'frees'. Best I've ever had- last year taught 34/40.

I work 3 days a week and teach 12/15. 2 are PPA and one is management time.

We haven't had our timetables yet, we sometimes don't get draft ones until last day and then proper ones in sept!

When I was ft HoD last year I got one extra hour a week than mainscale teachers. However it depends what department English, Maths and Science get more and smaller Dept's get less

One extra non contact lesson per week. One of the reasons I gave it up!

Perhaps I should stop moaning then wink

Different for different departments. I'm head of a core subject and started with 39/50 (2 week timetable). Went up to 43 with staff absence, and I was pretty close to losing it really, partly because of all the extra that comes when over 1/3 of your department is missing!

At least you've got your timetables now.
I still remember the chill as I realised that the timetable I was getting my tutor group to copy from the boar clashed with my one.

Core subject 16/25. Foundation subjects 19/25.

Blimey that's low. Or are we just hard done by?

42/50 in a 2 week timetable. It will be my busiest year
