Maximum number of classes per teacher

Discussion in 'Further Education' started by bambas71, Feb 15, 2012.

  1. Hello all I have a general enquiry regarding the number of classes a teacher should legally teach before it gets ridiculous.

    Is there any legislation or guide lines out there that indicate the Maximum amount of classes 1 teacher should teach?

    I know there are guidelines and research to suggest the maximum amount of students in a class but is there any advice as to how many different classes 1 teacher should teach.

    I currently teach 18 different classes over a 2 week timetable.

    Is anyone in a position to shed any light on this situation.

    11 of those classes are GCSE.

    2 are A-level

    5 are KS3

    Workload is unsustainable.

    Any suggestions.

  3. Full time in FE is 22-24 hours contact time per week.
    I don't quite get the 18 classes over 2 weeks (I have only ever worked a weekly timetable). How many hours is that a week?
