    First and Middle school - term time only.
    If I come in during the holidays I only get my normal rate, no extra which always seems unfair to me!

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I'm officially 15 hours a week, term time only, in a Junior School. I'm paid on a teaching assistant scale, and only get the normal rate if I do extra hours. I don't get paid lunch times or breaks on the days that I'm in, but usually get too engrossed in a job to take the breaks and very often end up working about half of the two lunch hours I'm in for. But school are flexible about letting me work at home sometimes if I need the peace and quiet. Would get more done if I came in regularly in the holidays, but family commitments make that difficult at present, so I mustn't complain.

    You shouldn't be paid the same as the TAs. There should be a separate pay scale for technicians - you need to check this - all counties have them, I think.

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I am full time (which works out at term time + inset at five days + 4 weeks).

    I'm quite low down the payscale at the moment, having only started in July 06 and this being my first job Still, prospects are good for me at the moment.

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I got a little confused after reading some comments and think I ticked the wrong box. I thought full time was when you worked like teachers and got the holidays off. Yet some of the comments sound like full time and you work in holidays.

    Also thought Team time was when you work term time but didn’t get holidays off or paid for them.

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Full time generally means 52 weeks a year minus holiday.

    So term time only would be part time.

    At least that's how i understand it.

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Full time and my technician is term time plus 2 weeks although when it is possible I get him some overtime for holiday work. Hey linuxgirlie we also get the "did you have a nice holiday" no because unlike you Mr Teacher we actually dont get 13 weeks paid holiday a year and still find time to grumble about the hours.

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I'm also TTO. It's both annoying and great, depending on how you look at it.

    Annoying because all the essential server work has to be done when people are in and they get disrupted. Also I can't get any big jobs done because of constant interruptions.

    Great because of the holidays. I have a small child and another on the way, so don't want to go full time just yet. Spending days at the York Railway museum is the best way to spend summer!

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Term time + 3weeks here. Last year it seemed like there
    wasn't enough time in the holidays.

    Will see how it goes this year.

    Still got all of the extra 3 weeks in holidays to use up at the moment.

    (Will be down a week after half term)
