*Important: This calculator is for the purpose of giving a general idea of expected payments as long as the correct information has been inputted. The Content is for informational purposes only, you should not construe any such information or other material as legal, tax, investment, financial, or other advice.

This Topic will be consistently updated until the full functionalities of the Calculator are explained. The Source code for the calculator will also soon be made open as to allow members to contribute to the effectiveness and accuracy of the tool.

 

How the calculator determines your base pay.

Within the calculator is stored the current payrates of teachers as stated on the SNCT here.

The annual salary is then divided by 1645 which is the number of Total Working Hours in the year. The result of this value is the payrate of supply teachers per hour. 

E.g.

Annual Salary ÷ Total Annual Working Hours  = Hourly Wage
£33,729 ÷ 1645  = £20.50

 

A Supply teacher will be paid an hourly wage based on their scale point provided that their period of work extends over 2 days.

Supply teachers engaged on period of work of 2 days or fewer will be calculated based on Pay scale 1 (Pay scale 0 if not fully registered) as mentioned in Part 2: Section 1 - Pay of the SCNT Website.

...from the SCNT Website

Short Term Supply Teachers

1.5 Short-term supply teachers are engaged on periods of work of 2 days or fewer. Pay will be calculated on the hourly rate as defined in paragraph 1.8 and applied to the daily hours worked in accordance with Section 2, paragraph 3.3 below. The rate of pay will be the incremental point on the Main Grade Scale for which the teacher qualifies in accordance with paragraphs 1.19 to 1.26.

1.6 A short-term supply teacher may be engaged to teach for the whole pupil day. A short-term supply teacher will not be deployed for more than one discrete block of time in any day. A discrete block of time will be a full day or half a day.

1.7 In all cases, the short-term supply teacher will receive an automatic 10% pay uplift for preparation and correction time.

Teachers (other than Short Term Supply Teachers) and Music Instructors

1.8 The daily rate of pay for teachers and music instructors will be 1/235(1) of the annual rate of salary. The hourly rate of pay will be calculated on the basis of 1/1645(2) of the annual rate of salary.

1.9 Temporary teachers on fixed term contracts will normally be employed for a complete working day session and will be paid the daily rate for each day as defined in paragraph 1.8 above.

1.10 Where a teacher is employed for less than a complete working day, the teacher will not be employed for more than one discrete block of time in any day. Teachers employed for a period of less than a complete working day shall be paid an hourly rate calculated as above. Other than in exceptional circumstances, they shall be obliged, on a pro rata basis, to undertake and be paid for all of the contractual commitments required of teachers as set out in Section 2 (Main Duties) and Section 3 (Working Year and Working Week).

Footnotes: (1) 235 days = 195 working days + 40 days annual leave (2) 1645 hours = 235 days x 7 hours

 

The calculator will then take your hourly rate and times this by the number of hours you have worked in the month.

 

Advanced Mode

When you enable Advanced mode the calculator will give you further information about what payment additions and deductions are added to your payment which is closer to the numbers Payroll will present.

 

Meaning of each Payment

S. Tch Hours represents the pay you will receive based on the hours you worked within the month.

TCH Holiday Acrr represents the additional pay supply teachers will receive which is to fulfil the payment gap supply teachers suffer from not being able to work over the holidays.

Holiday pay tends be be roughly 20.512821% of your S. Tch Hours Pay.

E.g.

Holiday Pay Percentage of S.Tch Hours  =  Holiday Pay
20.512821% of £1000 = £205.1282

 

Meaning of Each Deduction

Gross Pay Tax represents the tax you will pay on your payments earned through hours worked.
Holiday Pay Tax represents the tax you will pay on you Teacher Holiday Accrued Pay.
