I have been offered an interview for an hourly paid position teaching A-Level. The idea of hourly paid is not ideal however the subject in question does not come up often and I feel experience teaching it would be good so I'd see it as more a means to an end. The main thing I'm worried about is money. I know the rate of pay and hours but I am not clear on how hourly paid works. Will I get any preparation money or am I literally only paid for the hours I teach? It did not specify on the advert. The idea of only being paid of the hour I taught worries me financiallly, seeing as there would be time in half terms and evenings where I'd be planning and marking, especially seeing as I would be the sole teacher of this subject. I have always been told never to ask about pay. How do I find this out? I would not want to accept the job without knowing more on the way the pay works.
