New app for new teachers

October 17, 2013

Classtime, our newest mobile app, helps occasional teachers keep track of where and when they worked, as well as when they get paid. You can download it for free on Google Play and on the App Store.

"We recognize that more and more of our members are coming to rely on their mobile devices, and because of this, we've decided to explore the mobile app space," says Tracy Abel, Vice-President, Member Services. "The pension plan is complex. We're creating simple tools that will help our members navigate that complexity, while they work towards their secure retirement."

Why did we go mobile?

Roughly 70% of Canadians use mobile devices. Of those, 97% use their mobile phone at home, and 83% use mobile on the go. The vast majority of these mobile users, about 80%, are using smartphones.* (Google Engage Canada Conference, September 2012)

How does it work?

Classtime is solely intended for your personal use to allow you to keep track of the days you've worked, where you worked, and whether you've been paid for your time. The app features helpful tips and answers to your FAQs to help you build credit in the pension plan. Classtime does not report service to Teachers' or your employer. If you have any questions about how your work days are reported to Teachers', please contact your employer.
