Hi, it's been a while since I was on TES community last, and the forum seems to have evolved since I last posted (on the maternity thread). I am returning to teaching after a long career break, and have felt lucky to get a few little jobs here and there. I do a few regular hours at a stretched secondary school (on hourly rate!), I work for a private company supplying PPA cover in primary, and now have been contacted by another primary school to help them out with an area of teaching (my specialism) in which they feel they lack experience. It seems they want a few meetings with me, to help with lesson prep, schemes of work and modelling. My main question is, having gently mentioned the question or payment, can I get some advice on specifics? My hourly rate for the private company works out at £23 ish, and £28 for the secondary school. I'm M6, having declined going through to UPS to make myself competetive when I returned to work (a fine plan that turned out to be!). The work promises to be stimulating, but currently is very imprecisely defined. If I am writing schemes of work, that can be very time consuming! So far, the primary school have asked me for a few after-school meetings. Does anyone on here have experience of what a reasonable rate would be for an hourly meeting? Thanks for reading.
