5 Bits of Advice About: Doing the job you’re employed to do

  1. Know your conditions of service. This might be School Teachers’ Pay & Conditions, or different if you’re in an academy – but you need to know what you’re employed to do.
  2. Be on time: to lessons, to meetings, to briefings, to parents’ evenings – to everything. There is no excuse for being late.
  3. Do your duties. Not showing up, or being late to them, means you leave other staff vulnerable should something happen. At best it means other staff having to cover for you.
  4. Know your rights in terms of rarely cover, directed time, class sizes, classroom temperatures – the day to day stuff is as important as the ‘big issues’.
  5. Read the school policies. Start with those that impact you most, and work your way through them: this will benefit you in the long run.
