The University will normally grant maternity/adoption/shared parental leave to eligible Associate Professors where the college is the major employer (formerly CUF lecturers), concurrently with leave granted by the college. Normal practice is also to dispense these lecturers from the obligation to give any lectures which they would otherwise have given during the period of maternity/adoption/shared parental leave.
Notification of intended family leave should be submitted in the normal way, as outlined in the general family leave guide to the relevant contact in the divisional office.
In addition, academic staff must provide full information about the implications of the leave, for example in respect of substitute university teaching required, the position of graduate students supervised, and examining commitments. Details of the position regarding concurrent leave from the college should also be supplied. Replacement teaching arrangements must be agreed by or on behalf of the divisional board, on the recommendation of the faculty board/department concerned.
