Job Sharing for Teachers

Job sharing allows a permanent full-time position to be divided between two teachers (one permanent and one fixed term), who share the position for one school year. The full-time position continues to ‘belong’ to the permanent employee however both employees are placed on a contract for one school year during the job share arrangement.
