What does this mean?
I don't have a contract but work in education should I have one?
Tried to raise it with HR and think they are being a bit dodgy.
Anyone know the rules?

There are no "rules" but it would be usual to have a contract or statement of the main terms. Sessional workers are usually exactly that - people who are employed based on the fact that their employment is worked via "sessions" - periods of time. Another term used might be casual workers. Their employment may be session by session, others might have a regular pattern of sessions e.g. 2 - 4 every Tuesday and Thursday.
Why are you asking? HR may not be forthcoming, but they generally aren't "dodgy".

Isn’t it a normal term? Quite common.
Who do you think is being dodgy? HR?

I'm in FE and teach on a sessional contract, they use me to cover sickness etc and short course where they can't guarantee permanent hours. I get an enhanced rate which includes holiday allowance. Lots of teachers have these it just leaves you vulnerable if the hours dry up, highly unlikely in the current situation.

Thanks for replies
I have no written agreement setting out t and c's
I agree that it is a vulnerable position to be in
