Unfortunately Lorina, I have already found from 3 ECT positions that I have enquired about, VECTEA is NOT offered and the Children's Services award is used to pay the ECT.
One from an employment agency and the others from large chains of LDC's. One director informed me that I would not be eligible for school holidays as the Kinder program was run year round and I would be entitled to 4 weeks annual leave.
Another full time ECT position offered just 3 hours a week non contact time. Sadly, having to negotiate or find a VECTEA paying role has been an issue. Even during study at University, a lecturer urged us to the importance of finding a position covered under VECTEA.
