TLR post advertised on lower pay

TLR position is being advertised internally. It’s on a lower TLR band than before by a nearly half for the same role and same responsibilities. Is this standard practise now? Can you advertised a new pay band without changing the roles or responsibilities?

Presumably, the lower pay reflects what the school can afford.

It sounds fairly standard. The school will pay what they can afford and what they think they can get away with.

One of my old TLR posts was never replaced when I left but I found out from friends that it was carved up into small areas and sold to 3rd year teachers as a perfect project to give them experience for when they start looking for promotion. TLR saved and most of the job was done.

We have heads of year on 3 different salary scales, the most recently appointed on just over half of the more long term staff.

EXACTLY the same job, with different titles. Sickening.

I have a TLR which is more than double that being currently offered for 2 posts the same as mine in my school.

That's exactly what we do at my school now as well. Means that in my faculty the heads of subjects are on different amounts. Although I think we are looking at reducing all Tlrs but for those in post we have 3 years protection on what we are paid.

Our school always, always offers the lowest TLR rate it can afford to for each band.
But, when I covered the duties of the deputy's first maternity leave, I was given a TLR2. When she went off again (different headteacher) I was only given a TLR3 and I had to argue my case for being given the same TLR again.

Since then, I've taken on different responsibilities and rightly been given a TLR3, which is usually for a fixed one year role with a defined purpose. The head is talking about giving me more responsibility with my role, inc being a nominal head of a couple of year groups and has mentioned the need to 'revisit the TLR level' but I shall see what Sept brings in terms of whether that happens or whether I shall be expected to take it on for the £500 a year it brings rather than £2.5k.
