In pairs, discuss the answers to the following questions. 1. What is a contract? 2. Who might have a contract? 3. Where might contracts be used? Contracts
Understanding a contract Terms The parts of the contract that must be followed by both parties if the agreement is to be kept. A contract is an agreement between individuals or groups of people, supported by law. The content of a contract is made up of terms. The terms determine the points on which both parties are in agreement. For example, the terms of a mobile phone contract state the amount of money the user must pay, and the services the company will provide in return. Parties The groups, companies or individuals entering into the contract. For example, the user of the mobile phone, the network provider, and the company who manufactures the mobile phone.
Negotiating a contract Later in the year, each team will be designing and making cards to sell at a fair. The aim is to raise money for a charity of your choice. Imagine that your head teacher has asked you to draw up a contract about the project, in particular the fair, before he/she will agree to let you hold the charity sale in school. Who will the parties be? What terms will you ask for from your teacher and volunteers? What terms will your head teacher want included? What is a compromise, and how will you reach it if needed?
Summary Tax is a percentage of our earnings that goes to the government for them to spend on services we use When two or more people want to agree on something, they often write and sign a contract, which details the terms. Parties are the groups who agree to the terms of the contract Find out what the volunteers do at work and see their offices Next session we will be visiting the Bank of England to find out all about money, savings and interest!
