The wrong pay scale?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by breezyboy, Jan 4, 2011.

  1. <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="post">I am employed as a cover supervisor for a member of staff who has been off since september, I soley cover his lessons. I am an NQT and keen to complete my NQT year. The school agreed that i could do my first term (Sept to Dec) NQT which i completed and have been signed off for.
    I have heard that you cannot complete your NQT year as a cover supervisor and that the school should be paying Main Pay Scale as i have not received any cover work and have planed and marked all the work myself.
    Any Advice would be well received.

    You can only be a registered with the LA as an NQT on Induction when working as a teacher.
    I suggest that you phone the LA Induction advisor for your specialism and ask if you have actually been registed since September.
    Then, in your most naive voice, ask if it matters that you are being employed only as a Cover Supervisor, even though you do all the planning etc.
    The school is being underhand. They should only be using CS to cover short-term absences (first 3 days) and certainly not for absences that they know will last at least a term. They probably have an insurance policy paying out for a replacement TEACHER and could actually be making a profit by getting a teacher for CS rates!
