    A job I am interest in for a Teacher is advertised as full time - term time, what does this mean?

    That you are not required to be present out of term time.

    What theo says. Which is why it's important to explain to people that we don't have 'paid holidays'. We have a term time contract that is paid over 12 months in equal installments.

    Double-check with the school itself, particularly if private sector.
    I taught in one place where some contracts were year round (meaning that they got five weeks holiday a year, and were expected to teach Easter /half-term revision courses) and some were term-time only (meaning they were paid only in term-time, and not in exam week either).

    Check that the role includes pay in the holidays? Not all school jobs have this anymore.
