Abstract

The research reported here was commissioned by the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT) in August 2005. The overall aim of the research was to provide the SNCT with evidence on whether commitments on teachers’ working week have been met, following the agreement reached in response to the McCrone Report. The research indicates that the amount of time needed to undertake tasks associated with carrying out a teaching role is in excess of 35 hours. Moreover, a significant number of respondents expressed the concern that their work load was unsustainable.
