1:1 Tuition - contract or supply rate?

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by iamthewalrus, Jul 14, 2011.

  1. Please can someone enlighten me as to how you employ your 1:1 tutors? We have 40+ places for next year, HR tell me that if I use a tutor for more than 10 weeks they have to have a contract, and if I use the same tutors that I have this year (which I will, because they are brilliant) then I will have to give them a permanent contract as they will have been employed for 18 months in the same role. I can't do this because a) the funding is secure year on year, b) tutors have to be paid at (essentially) supply rate and not mainscale rates, and c) I don't want to give them a contract!!! Help!

    I thought ours were paid on their payscale if they worked during the school day but if out of school hours were paid the 1 to 1 flat rate but that may just be our LA. We are primary. I'm sure someone with better info. will be able to give you a better answer.
  3. You can employ them for the flat rate before or after school or at lunchtime & can do 30 min slots 2x a week per child. A fixed term contract linked to funding should solve your problem if you need them in school time. Make dates of employment clear in job d & contract & say it is for named children, linked to limited external funding. You need to make all this explicit to those who get job too in a signed letter.
  4. In Lincolnshire we get flat rate no matter when we do tuition. I have had a contract each year, for the children I tutor for ten sessions.
  5. If they are teaching during school hours then they are paid as TPCD full time pro rata, if outside school hours then £25-£30pph.
