Half load

What are the circumstances in which a teacher in service can apply for reduced load besides caring for children?

Actually Edun scheme has finer subgrades (i.e more subgrades) than MX scheme so there is
more sense of progression than MX. I would say that MX gets stuck for a much longer time than EOs at each grade.

Yes, this is especially problematic if you look at how many EOs are holding FULL (not internal) SH/LH/AYH even HOD/YH appointments, performing up to expectations or better, but are still stuck at GEO4.

These are usually the talented EOs who demonstrate good leadership and management abilities early in their career.. but are punished with management responsibilities at non-management (GEO) pay grade.

This especially hits those who joined around 2015 onwards.

The more experienced teachers (7-8 years or more) donít really feel this because they would have gotten their GEO 4/5 relatively more quickly. In the past, it was not uncommon to go from GEO3 (GEO1A1) to GEO 4 (GEO1A2) in a year or two. Now, it can take 4-5 years or even more, even for hardworking teachers!

Moreover, there were service wide salary increments every 4-5 years. Iím 2015, it was 4-9%. In 2012, it was 5-15%. There was something in 2008 too. The last one is in 2015 (which BTs did not get), so anyone who joined 2015 and later have not had service wide increments before.
