    I have seen a post advertised at 16.25 hours . Does anyone know what that would be FTE? I don’t know what hours are considered full time (for pay, not what is really worked). Thanks

    If it’s a teacher job, that’s 0.5 FTE.

    It is, thank you. I thought it was, but wasn’t certain.

    I would double-check with the school, especially if not LA.

    I am always wary of posts advertised by the hour - this might mean pay will be by the hour so really important to check pay and conditions offered.

    As @carriecat10 says, look very carefully at the contract. A likelihood is that it may have nothing do do with any pay scale as recognised by the sorts of bodies that recognise such things, but is 16.25 hours in front of classes for whichever academic year you're appointed.
    Whether that's good depends on the detail. Hourly pay for the evening class I did a few years ago was fine. It wouldn't have been so in front of year 9.
