part time or part-time/term time calculation


Good morning

I just want to check that my thinking on the following is ok.  I have a new apprentice who will be working 25 hrs a week term time, and 7 hours a week during holidays. (She calls herself a term-time only employee but is contracted for the 7 hours in the holidays).   I'm hoping I can just average out the hours over the year and calculate the planned end date as a part-time worker rather than having to factor in term time/holiday time hours.  We would need to adjust her learning plan accordingly but in terms of calculating the planned end date, does this sound reasonable to you?

Yes, average the hours over the year and then use that as the basis for how much you extend it.

Seems likely, if she's just in seven hours a week over the hols, that she'll not have much time to do a lot of OTJ, so you'll have to flex the rest "per week" to make sure she hits the number by the end.
