Teacher Apprenticeship -OTJ in summer?

Created

Hi,

I'm just looking for clarification for teachers. We have a learner who is seeking to do some learning over the summer holidays, since they are a teacher this would essentially be their time off. The Funding rules indicate that people on contracts such as this wouldn't be expected to go on a BIL in learning over the summer, no learning is expected at this time. My question is: can a learner still study over the summer? I would assume not as this is their own time and it wouldn't account towards the 20%?

Thanks,

Jenny

We're planning some intensive summer delivery for teaching assistant apprentices. It's clearly documented in our plan. Now we're supposed to treat term time only as full time, I can't see how anyone could complain. Nobody dictates to us when annual leave falls for any other apprentices.

Our teachers collect off the job over the holidays as they don`t have term time only contracts. Their hours are over the year. I think most teachers are on the same type of contract.
