    I know of a school where they advertised for someone as an IT Tech - term time only - 8.5k - pro rata! That was last year. And they wondered why no-one applied.....

    That's a temporary position, so it will be 50-60 a day.

    It's funny isn't it.....a business manager on 40k and/or a head on 65k probably dreamt that figure up....and actually thought it was acceptable for someone to work for that wage.

    They probably thought, well there has to be really really $%^&poorly paid workers to offset our astronomical salaries.

    I'm finding it hard to find something else... that has a decent enough wage at least! Can't afford to go pro rata

    Kinda sickens me how us teckies get paid peanuts when we do actually have a 'skill' and I'd like to be thought of as a professional... just don't get the professional wage!

    I didn't bold that as I think it is a typo. Might add to the fun though...

    Nope. A school has complete independence when it comes to support staff pay. However, they are encouraged to stick to the guidelines (ie. the councils beat the school with sticks should they not).
