STP Role Profiles Evaluation Outcome

The Sessional Teaching Payroll (STP) Role Profiles were developed based on roles already used by departments piloting STP. Where available, these Role Profiles were compared with standard teaching profiles already in use across the University before being shared for wider consultation with a range of key stakeholders, including current sessional teachers, academic staff, departmental administrators, Human Resources, and senior colleagues in order to ensure that the Profiles were an accurate reflection of the sessional roles currently undertaken. A series of workshops were then held with academic departmental representatives and sessional teachers to consider the detail of the Profiles as they apply to existing sessional teaching requirements and a number of amendments and additions, including from the Students’ Union and UCU, were incorporated.
The Role Profiles were then evaluated by a trained and impartial panel through the Hay evaluation process used for all salaried roles in the University in order to align the roles with the University’s grading structure. The panel included representatives from academic staff, UCU and Human Resources. The evaluation panel came to the following conclusions regarding the grading of the STP Role Profiles:

  • Assistant Tutor/Group Facilitator - Level 4
  • Demonstrator - Level 4
  • Workshop/Demonstration Leader - Level 5
  • Associate Tutor - Level 5
  • Sessional Tutor - Level 6
  • Senior Sessional Tutor - Level 7
  • Principal Sessional Tutor - Level 8

Further meetings with Sessional Tutors and departmental representatives are being organised to discuss the Handbooks for STP Tutors in 2017-18, before these are adopted by the University and published towards the end of May.
