It is important that you are clear about what your contractual 38 weeks of Teaching and Teaching Related (TTR) activities actually are. You might find the spreadsheet below useful in helping you plan your working year. There is also a short video to help you with using it.
Please make sure that you take all your holiday and RSA (this is part of contractual entitlement). If you are asked to do a specific task e.g. an open day on a booked RSA day then it is NOT an RSA day but rather a TTR day!
We also strongly suggest using Outlook to capture ALL your activities, not just teaching classes. E.g. the one hour per week you get for prep for each lecture, all meetings, chats to students, phone/Teams calls, marketing activities, research time, half an hour for lunch, pen days, etc.
