This clause is not about the nature of work done, but about the requirement to attend school or elsewhere when the school is not open for instruction.   

Clause 5.4 gives your employer the contractual right to require you to attend school or elsewhere, when the school is not open for instruction, for five days per year for professional development, and a further and separate five days per year for administration, preparation, communication, co-ordination and liaison.  Balanced against the employer right to require attendance, clause 5.4 gives teachers a contractual right to refuse to attend school or elsewhere outside periods when they have already accrued voluntary or directed attendance of five days or the equivalent per year.
