Accrual of Holiday when Acting Up

Teachers accrue holiday for each day worked at the rate they are paid for that day times 0.2051, approximately one day for each 5 working days.  If you act up into a promoted post then you are accruing future holiday at the rate for that post.  When the acting up post ends a calculation will need to be done on how many days of the working year you have worked at your normal rate less any holiday already taken at that rate plus how many days at the acting up rate less any holiday already taken at that rate.

This means that if you act up for a substantial part of the year but are stepped down before the summer then the majority of your summer holiday will be still be due to be paid at the higher rate.  Please contact the office for help and guidance with any calculations.
