Job-Sharing Scheme - Circular Letter 0054/2019 - Chapter 8

The purpose of the job sharing scheme is to assist teachers in combining work with personal responsibilities or choices. 

Job sharing is the sharing of a wholetime post on a 50:50 basis or a reduction of hours to 50% of a wholetime teacher ie: 11 hours per week teaching.

The minimum period for which a job sharing arrangement may occur is one school year.

A teacher seeking to job share must submit the required application form JS1 to the employer not later than the 1st February prior to the school year in which he/she proposes to commence/continue job sharing.

The required form, JS1, is attached to Job Sharing Scheme - Circular Letter 0054/2019 - Chapter 8 - Appendix A
