General Pay Enquiries?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by Cunni, Jan 26, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,

    I qualify next Summer and although I can approach my mentor's/University tutors with these questions I am fully aware sugar coated responses will be given as we're not too well acquainted at this current moment.

    Basically have quite a few questions and wondered if you could help me out:

    1) What will my starting pay be when/if I do qualify? Teaching in Lancaster. Is there a teachers wage calculator that would let me know what my take-home would be each month?

    2) After how many years does this pay rise, and at what rates?

    3) What is the wage cap I keep hearing about, at what wage is it and how do I overcome it?

    4) I know pupils hours are generally 09:00-15:30, but is it frowned upon to be entering half an hour before and leaving half an hour later?

    5) Do I get paid when on the sick or for an unforeseen absence?

    May be a few more to add, but any help is greatly appreciated.
