Working hours

Working hours in the education and training sector vary depending on the position held, the educational institution and the collective agreement in question.

Working hours can be based on annual working hours, weekly working hours, the teaching obligation or on the classes given.

Part-time vs full-time teacher

Whether you work as a part-time or full-time teacher is very important in terms of the conditions of your employment relationship and your working hours.

The weekly hours of a part-time teacher may vary from no teaching hours to the hours based on the teaching obligation and more. A full-time teacher works at least 16 hours a week.

Working time experiments

If a supervisor at your workplace proposes a working time experiment, contact your local association or chief shop steward immediately.
