Hi,

I'm currently working part time and was wondering if my salary has been worked out correctly.
In my contract it says I am .32 FTE which works out at £12031.68 as I am on UPS1 (£37599). I am being a) thick or b) naive to assume that I divide the full time amount by 5 and then multiply by 2???

Also, could anyone help me calculate UPS 2 Inner London (£43,536) if I work 3 days a week?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Why do youwant to divide by 5 and multiply by 2? That would be how someone on 0.4 would work out their pay!
You need to divide by 100 and multiply by 32 OR divide by 10 and multiply by 3.2 OR divide by 5 and multiply by 1.6 (all of which will give you &pound;12031-68).
As to your other query, it depends whether working 3 days per week is 0.6 or higher.
Assuming a straight 0.6 contract, you'd get &pound;26121-60 which is &pound;43536 multiplied by 6 and divided by 10 (o.6 is the same as 6 tenths).

Erm. I wasn't clear in my initial message. I want to know why I have been paid 0.32 as opposed to 0.4. I was wondering how to work out my pay for 2 days a week - i.e. if I get £37599 for 5 days a week shouldn't I get £15039.60 for 2 days (/5 x2). I suppose I need to check why I am on 0.32 for 2 days a week.

Also, wouldn't working 3 days have to be 0.6? Why would it be higher Jubilee?

Thanks

Do you work two full days, or is it some combination of half days?

It could be higher if you were ,say, teaching every lesson of the three days, making your teaching timetable more than 0.6 of a full-timer's. That would mean youhaving your PPA allocated to a 4th day when the school have not timetabled you and may agree to you not having to be on the premises.
My sister, a full-timer admittedly, was given a fixed afternoon session each week for her PPA and was allowed to leave school (Early Years ) at lunch-time on that day.
As to your current dilemma ... are you required to be in school for 2 full days? With a 0.32 contract, you should be able to arrive later or leave earlier on one or both days, with an attendance coinciding with 8, not ten contact hours (not teaching for 8 hours though as you'd have your PPA time at least taken off that).
If you are timtabled to teach the first and last lessons on each of your days, they should be paying you 0.4 to cover 'trapped time'.
I think a chat with your Union is in order.

I work 1 full day and 2 half days. I still work this out at 9 periods though (with 1 PPA).

I'll talk to my Head today.
