Directed Time Budgets

Directed Time Budgets enable a principal to take an important step towards ensuring that the health and wellbeing of their teachers is achieved as well as the more effective functioning of their school.

While Directed Time Budgets have been a requirement for teachers since 2011, the Department of Education, as part of the 2020 pay deal, agreed to insist on them being made available to teachers at the beginning of the new 2020/21 term.

In order to keep our members informed, INTO have produced the following Directed Time Budgets Guidance which includes a short explanatory video animation, frequently asked questions and additional resources.
