    Does anyone know if there is a standard way to work out part time pay? No-one seems to be able to give me an answer at my school and I want to make sure I'm being paid the correct amount.

    it is very simple - you work out what fraction of a full-time job you are doing and apply that to teh full-time salary as a multiplier.
    eg: if your school works a 50-hr fortnight and you teach 23 of those 50 lessons, you earn 23/50ths (64%) of the f/t salary.

    Not so! pay is not worked out as the fraction of the timetable that you teach as even 2 f/t teachers can have a different contact load. It's worked out as the fraction of your employment contract.
    If you are taken on with a 0.5 contract, you get exactly half of the f/t pay for your pay point. Basically, you multiply your contract length by the annual salary (then divide it by 12 to get your monthly gross pay)
    You use your contract length to work out your maximum contact time too. If you are 0.5, you should use the maximum lesson hours of a f/t equivalent teacher to work out your maximum timetable (also your minimum PPA and NQT time).
