Record of teaching service

You should complete a record of teaching service for each period you work in a school. Each record of teaching service should record the following information:

  • the local authority in which you completed the teaching service
  • the school
  • start and end dates (not including weekends)
  • actual number of working days (this is calculated automatically)
  • whether the service was full time or part time and if part time, the part time equivalent
  • the subject
  • the percentage teaching time in the subject

Supporter meetings and records of observed teaching sessions

Once you have added a record of teaching service, you are given the option of entering any supporter meetings and/or records of observed teaching sessions that have taken place during the period. To add to either of these records, simply select the 'view' option form the 'Tools' column under the main record of teaching service screen.

Periods of teaching service of more than 20 days

If your period of teaching service lasts for more than 20 days in any school, you must record at least one record of observed teaching session and get this signed off by your supporter or head teacher. The option to 'submit for sign off' will appear in the 'Tools' column of the main record of teaching service screen.
