Teachers are entitled to a number of leaves including a thirty days annual leave which can be granted during school holidays.
A teacher in the employment of the Commission is entitled to a maximum of thirty days annual leave with full pay in respect of each calendar year worked irrespective of the terms and conditions of service.
The Commission further states that annual leave shall only be taken during school holidays and not be accumulated to be carried forward from year to year.
