    Here's an international schools perspective. I teach in Vietnam at an International school and I am Head of Studies (similar to HOD) for secondary school and business studies/English teacher. I teach 19 x 45 minute periods per week (no Form class). Most of my time is taken up with meetings, school improvement initiatives and endless admin duties. Even though 19 lessons a week isn't that much, I would prefer less!!!!! (-:

    Most management at my place are on 60-80% timetables depending on additional responsibilities and if you're a core subject, etc. Non-core HoDs are on about 80%, core HoDs about 70%, HoFs about 60%.

    I have worked as a HOD in a previous school with no additional management time, that was very tough. I'm now teach 40 periods over a two week timetable which has been so much better, I do have a form group though and duties. My workload is still more than I can manage though as there are lots of meetings, very long hours!

    I'm a HOD for Science, I teach 17/25 and a normal teacher does 22/25 per week. Sounds v generous compared with some of this!
