Hi i had an odd conversation with my head and he said that he wanted to offer me TLR - specifically because of new initiatives that I had developed over the last year and will continue doing so this year. He then came back to me and said that HR had said that the TLR couldn't be offered as it had to be set for 3 year and could not be attached to a teacher per say but to the initiative. Instead I would get extra pay due to Recruitment and Retention Allowance. I was a bit confused but was caught on the hop really. I asked if the allowances were the same but he didn't know. IT's good to get extra money but at least with TLRs you know the amount. Are R&R allowances the same? Do I have to take on extra management roles as it had been mentioned that with the TLR would come managing a group of teachers and TAs? Can someone point me in the right direction regarding R&R and my responsibilities. I feel a little confused about it all as its been caught conversations. I will be having my performance management meeting this half term and feel i want to be clear by then. Any advice gratefully received.
