Teachers in the private sector are often scheduled to be in work on SATURDAY mornings. I'd hate to routinely lose a proper weekend but I suppose they do have longer holiday periods than in the State sector. I know of Academies where team-building sessions are scheduled for Friday evenings, followed by a Saturday. Thsoe who transferred over under TUPE could insist on their protected DT hours being allocated only to school days but others taken on directly would not have that option. I asked one TUPE HOD why he didn't ignore the weekend sessions as he was entitled to do and he said it would not be looked on well for someone in his position and so was not worth his while to stay away.
