Is a fractional contract the same as a fixed term contract? I have resigned from my college and intend to leave teaching but I don't have another job yet. My college have asked if I would consider a fractional contract if I don't have another post on 30th April, to cover my own classes until Whit half term. Another question - would a fractional contract involve attendance in college at any other time expect the specific lessons I would teach? Any advice gratefully accepted - can't find anything on this thread about this.
