Allocations Seminars

The seminars will address the principles underpinning the allocation of teaching resources and will enable school management to correctly interpret the schedules. 

This is a Q&A session. As in recent years, representatives of the Teacher Allocation Section will attend and JMB staff will be available to meet school management on an individual basis to assist with issues related to teacher allocations. 

Those attending should have a copy of (or access to) the school’s DES Staffing Schedule 2020/2021 and associated documentation, including the staffing schedule cover letter which shows vacancies based on the initial allocation.

Who should attend?

School principals, chairpersons and those who have responsibility for decisions regarding the curriculum, timetabling and staffing.

All attendees must register on-line prior to attending training/events.
Payment for JMB events/training will only be accepted by credit/debit card, as with all other on-line bookings/purchases.
