This might sound a daft question (sorry!) but do teachers really get 2 months + off in the summer? I know they spend a lot of time marking & planning lessons etc, but could you just take off abroad for those 8 weeks every year or do you still have to attend the school for preparation and stuff, even though the kids are off?

:confused:

I know it the length of time varies around the country, but I hink6 weeks is still pretty normal for the summer break.

I'm not sure how much a teacher is required to do over that time. I guess it's in their best interests to do as much as possible, but I don't think there are heavy, compulsory requirements for them to attend anything in school, though I'd imagine very few actually don't go in for some of the time.

I think there's only a few days which are compulsory, like training days, meetings etc, but yes, they get a lot of holiday! :p:

They spend most of it dispatching a large backlog of paper work though.

The amount of paperwork would depend on your subject... I'm going for PE, and there's not much paperwork for that! Also, when I went to work experience I asked one of the PE teachers about their lesson plans, and she said she just makes it up as she goes along! :p:
