Bank Holidays for LTFT Trainees

There are 8 Bank Holidays per year. A full-timer is entitled to all of these with the LTFT trainee pro rata. Occasionally a full-timer can be rostered for a full week’s work without any of these hours falling on the Bank Holiday. In these circumstances the full-timer can claim a day’s holiday in lieu of the Bank Holiday. The LTFT trainee may be in a similar situation and should be able to claim Bank Holidays in proportion to their hours of work per week compared to full-time. As LTFT trainees can claim a proportion of Bank Holidays, in return, the LTFT trainee must be available to work some of these Bank Holidays.
