    I'm currently struggling with one of my duties which is allocating groups to teachers and making sure the department timetable is okay.

    The department timetable is okay but there is some groups that do not have teachers yet due to not having enough staff on the department, I need to try and allocate those groups to a teacher but it's hard as I don't have the other department members there for feedback.

    I also need to get this done by the end of the week so i can get the SLT to approve it for us.

    Why didn't you sort this out with your staff on Friday when you had your meeting?
    If you'd worked together you'd have got it done in no time.

    Other than that allocate all teachers a full timetable and then highlight the groups missing a teacher in red and send to SLT. It isn't your job to create teachers from thin air.
