These entitlements are split into two categories;

Day 1 entitlements - These include access to amenities within the school such as the canteen, staff common room, parking (if available), amongst other things.

12 Week Entitlements - These become effective after a 12 week qualifying period with the same employer in the same role type, such as parity of pay.

The effect of AWR on your placement with Academics is dependent on a number of factors, and will be explained to you by your consultant. However, you can find detailed information regarding Agency Workers Regulations in the following document;
