What every Warwick hourly-paid teacher should know.

From 2017/18, the University is rolling out a new payroll for all new and most existing hourly-paid teachers. This new payroll, alongside a new framework and set of role profiles is called the Sessional Teaching Payroll (STP).

The STP does not represent a significant change of direction for the University as it is still based on a casualised model of teaching. However, the majority of existing hourly-paid teachers will experience an overall improvement in their pay and conditions under the STP framework.

To help hourly-paid teachers better understand the new framework, the Students' Union has produced an FAQ. The University’s STP website should contain the most up-to-date and authoritative guidance but you can find answers to a lot of you questions in our guide:

What every Warwick hourly-paid teacher should know.

The fight for fairer pay and conditions for hourly-paid teachers has existed for many years and we must acknowledge that this improved framework has only come about as a result of thousands of hours put in by hundreds of campaigners. Since the collapse of the Teach Higher proposal, hourly-paid teachers, SSLCs, the Students’ Union, Warwick Anti-Casualisation and Warwick UCU have fought to fill the void. Together we have had some significant wins:

  • Teachers are now paid for preparation, all contact hours, marking, advice and feedback hours, and some training.

  • There has been a 33% pay increase for essay marking.

  • There has been a 15% increase in rate of pay across all activities for the lowest-paid demonstrators.

  • There has been a 100% increase in the number of paid-for advice and feedback hours.

  • Pay rates are now linked to University salary scales so increase annually.

  • All demonstrators can claim pay for preparation time up to the length of the lab.

  • Teaching has been abolished as a condition of receiving a doctoral scholarship.

  • Students can no longer be forced to teach as part of their course.

There's much that still needs improving and the Students' Union alongside other campaigners will continue to fight for a fundamental shift in the University's approach to postgrads who teach. If you are interested in getting involved, do get in contact postgrads@warwicksu.com.
