I have recently taken early retirement at the age of 58. My pension is small, so I thought that I would apply for part time work. I have just been offered a .57, but the hours seem excessive now that I have been presented with the timetable. Breaks are excluded and amount to 210 minutes over a two week timetable. This is when I am in school, but not being paid. I am working 7 days out of ten - never less than a 4 hr day, beginning at 8 am most mornings with several 9 am starts (breaks not factored in), and 4 days are between 5 hrs and 5.33 hrs. The total paid hours are 19.67. The school has academy status and has a 29hr timetable. I have been told nothing at this point about Preparation time or free periods, but am feeling uneasy. Factoring in marking, meetings and Parents' Evenings, I am stressed before I start. Is this how things are in teaching now? Please advise. The school seems great with a good Ofsted. Maybe I am out of touch.
