11.2 If the hours of a part-time employee rise above 90% of the hours of a full-time employee, the employee will be considered full-time.
11.3 A part-time employee who requests to work above 90% of full-time hours, but less than full-time, will not be considered to be full-time and will be remunerated for the actual hours worked.
11.4 A part-time employee is entitled to the benefits under this award on a pro rata basis. The pro rata basis will be calculated by dividing the number of face-to-face teaching hours prescribed for the part-time employee from time to time by the usual number of face-to-face teaching hours prescribed for a full-time employee in the school, children’s service or early childhood education service.

(b) where such a variation is required as a result of a change in funding, enrolment or curriculum, the employer provides 7 weeks’ notice in writing in the case of a school teacher or 4 weeks’ notice in the case of an early childhood teacher, or where the change would result in a reduction in salary, the salary of the teacher is maintained for a period of 7 weeks in the case of a school teacher or 4 weeks in the case of an early childhood teacher.
