The Annual Leave Purchase Scheme is due to be launched in August, with a 6-week enrolment period running from Monday 16 August to Friday 24 September.
Eligible staff* will be able to purchase up to 1 week of additional holiday (pro-rata for part time staff) for the 21/22 holiday year. Any annual leave purchased through the scheme needs to be booked in line with normal holiday booking processes and staff are encouraged to discuss plans with their manager prior to enrolling.
As many will have leave planned during August, alongside planning for the new academic year, advanced notice of the application window has been provided to increased time to discuss any plans with your line manager. More guidance including a manager guide, FAQ’s and how to enrol will be communicated in August.
*Please note, staff on fractional or term time contracts are not eligible to apply to this scheme as the nature of their role requires them to be present during term-time and , therefore, it would not be possible to agree additional leave.
