Responsibility allowance for teachers

THE Open University study also revealed wide differences in how staff responsible for literacy were paid.

Literacy co-ordinators in almost half the schools

surveyed (46 per cent) were receiving a responsibility allowance.

The majority of these eachers had been awarded an additional point on the salary scale while a small minority (6 per cent) had two extra points.

Only 40 per cent of schools granted the

co-ordinator non-contact time. Usually this was more than one hour a week.
