Appendix 1: Teaching staff’ Schedule Clauses
This schedule applies to all staff who are employed on a full time, fractional or fixed term basis (i.e. not those lecturers who are engaged on hourly rates of pay- HPL).
2. Duties (Paragraph 2)
The scope of your teaching duties will include but not be limited to:
(i) formal scheduled teaching duties as follows; classroom teaching (including teaching in laboratories, studios and workshops), tutorials, observation of the teaching of others (where this is required by the course of study they are following), work based student assessment; invigilation for public examinations, interviewing and enrolment if this is part of the guided learning hours provided directly to students and within the teaching year, open and distance learning and cover for absent colleagues and
(ii) management of learning programmes and curriculum development, student admissions, counselling, preparation of learning materials and student assignments, marking of students’ work, marking of examinations, educational guidance and counselling (other than timetabled tutorials), management and supervision of student visit programmes, research and other forms of scholarly activity, internal verification, marketing activities, administration and personal professional development.
Your pedagogic duties (timetabled under the provision of 3 (i) of this schedule) will be balanced to take account of duties undertaken by you with respect to paragraph 3 (ii).
In addition teachers accompanying students on curriculum related field trips/foreign visits may have additional time, over and above scheduled teaching, counted against their annual teaching hours. It should be noted that in this instance the maximum weekly limits set out below will not apply.
The maximum number of scheduled teaching hours described in paragraph 3 (i) above will be 850 per annum. The requirement of your contract is that you can be expected to teach this number of hours.
Unless exceptional circumstances prevail, and subject to your agreement, you will not be expected to undertake duties with respect to paragraph 3 (i) of this schedule amounting to more than 25 hours per week. Normally you will not be timetabled to undertake duties with respect to paragraph 3 (i) of this schedule amounting to more than 23 hours per week.
The annualised and weekly hours stated above will be calculated on a pro rata basis for fractional staff.
3. Working hours (paragraph 4)
The weekly working hours will be 35 per week. You will be expected to attend your place of work punctually such that your scheduled duties can be undertaken efficiently and effectively. Any evening duties for which you are scheduled will normally be timed to coincide with the working hours of the college.
4. Annual leave (Paragraph 5)
Annual leave entitlement for a full time employee is 47 days excluding Bank Holidays and including any college closure days.

These entitlements will be calculated on a proportional basis for fractional lecturing staff.
