Eligibility - remunerative work (general): Term time workers (Info)

Term time workers are usually members of the non-teaching staff of educational establishments and include

  • general domestics
  • clerical staff (secretaries, clerks, librarians)
  • laboratory workers
  • nursing assistants
  • art class models
  • school bus drivers.

Note: This list isn’t exhaustive.

A holiday period for teachers and pupils isn’t necessarily a holiday for members of the non-teaching staff. This period is normally a time when term time workers aren’t required to work and should be disregarded when calculating the weekly hours.
