Part time and full time
As an Occasional Teacher, I felt my working hours were flexible because I was able to accept and deny jobs based on my availability. But as a Permanent teacher you are required certain working days with a lot of flexibility in terms of getting days off for personal reasons.
You can only work full time or part-time.
Hours are usually set at 5 days a week from 7-3, but days off are allowed if planned ahead of time. Usually they're pretty understanding.
