    Job evaluation

    Just been shown an interesting link to a report on the result of job evaluation in Blackburn and Darwen.

    See this report

    I didn't think this was possible so I'm quite concerned as they are a neighbouring authority. How long will it be before Lancashire county follows suite.

    I wonder where IT support and Network managers came in their new pay scale.

    Re: Job evaluation

    hmm... my pay went up this month!

    I think our school opted out of it or something... we are special here at St Wilfrids (For some reason?!)

    Re: Job evaluation

    I was told when i started my job (3 years ago) that my pay had already been evaluated under the new 'National Strategy' and IT jobs across the U.K. had already been evaluated. So anyone that has started a position in the last three years should be ok, this is what i was led to believe by out personnel manager.

    “and IT jobs across the U.K. had already been evaluated.”
    Around Nottingham they are making it clear no support jobs in schools have been evaluated yet and its takeing place in the next 12 to 18months. Perhaps it's Nottinghamshire only but I do know we haven’t been evaluated

    Re: Job evaluation

    It's possible that your schools have been hiring and setting their own scales i wasn't very clear. They should now be drawing up a job spec and then sending it to the local authority then it is returned with a pay scale that fits the new national framework.

    If your position was evaluated when you were hired then you'll be ok but if your school hasn't been doing this then your position will be up for evaluation.

    I can only comment on what i was told. Apparently some authorities are doing things slightly differently they are allowed to 'ignore' certain academic skills to level the playing field between 'skilled' and 'unskilled' workers this means that certain aspects of 'professional' roles don't count so if you fall into this then you can be undervalued.

    They do seem to keep moving the goal posts though.

    We have yet to hear the outcome of this in Norfolk it was supposed to be completed in April, bearing in mind we have only just this month received our 2.45% pay increase from April anyway.
