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.
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.
At its 16 March 2016 meeting, the Academic Resources Committee has approved revised rates for the 2016/17 academic year, which includes harmonized rates across pilot departments in the Arts and Social Sciences, extra provision for preparation in Mathematics, and an uplift for Assistant Laboratory Demonstrators in Chemistry. From 2016/17 these rates will also apply to the Department of History, which is joining the STP pilot.
From 16th November 2015 the 1% pay uplift was applied to any hours submitted through STP. Hours submitted prior to this date have will have the difference in pay calculated and back payments will be paid on 29th January.
