Working time/directed time – FAQs

NAHT has produced two advice guides for members around working time and directed time.

The first is a set of questions and answers that explain when teachers and school leaders are expected to work, including directed time, working time and requests to work during the weekend and school holidays.

The second answers questions around directed time and working with other unions. Sir Kevan Collins, the government-appointed education recovery tsar,  recently stated that the post-pandemic catch-up should be focused on quality and not quantity, and that he would not advocate raising teaching time without increasing pay. Nevertheless, media chatter about longer school days and summer schools has certainly been of great concern to most people working in schools, and the unions representing them.

As such, it isn’t surprising that there is renewed interest in directed time and the approach that should be taken to this. This guidance is intended to help you to determine how to navigate your way through this issue, should the need arise.
