A career break may be taken for a period of up to five years and may be taken in instalments provided that the total period does not exceed five years.
Lecturers retain an entitlement to return to duty in a permanent post on the termination of the career break.
Lecturers going on career break should be aware that the period of unpaid leave does not count for pension purposes.
A lecturer must forward the career break application to the Institute at least three months prior to the beginning of the college year in which they propose to commence the break.
