*Term time workers for this purpose:

·Term time working must be the employer's requirement and means a person whose contact of employment provides for a regular pattern of periods of work and periods of no work i.e. the workplace shuts over the school holiday; although it is not limited to persons working in educational establishments.

·If you choose to work term time hours but your employer would let you work during school holidays, then you will be classed as a part time worker for the purpose of assigning your contribution rate band.
