You can schedule your classes to meet your requirements, so normally a franchisee will not schedule classes at a time when they want to go away unless they have an employee teacher to run their classes for them. For example, they may cut a teaching term short by one week so they have a 3-week break between terms, rather than a 2-week break. Head Office generally does not supply fill in teachers for planned time off. Occasionally Head Office may be able to supply an emergency teacher but only if there is an existing teacher available who does not have any regular scheduled work at the relevant time and is otherwise available.
