Yes, a lot of jobs haven't minded that I've taken a lot of unpaid holiday, but it's always better to be paid for some of it.(Original post by Owl1867)
Yeah I guess I ought to know my rights a bit more, but tbh I'm quite happy with the system because it doesn't really limit the number of holidays per year

remember you are the worker, you are not entitled to time off to revise, but you are entitled to 4 weeks holiday per year, which is 4 x your weekly contract hours, you know when your exam times are so book them as your holidays in advance.

I negotiated 5 weeks unpaid, as long as I sign a 16 hour a week contract for the summer holidays. Which is fine by me, I need the money! It doesn't hurt to ask for unpaid leave.
