do teaching assistants have to work a month in hand before first wage goes in?

Teachers get paid at the end of the month, just like any regular person, however in some local authorities non teaching education staff (e.g. TAs, admin etc) get paid in the middle of the month, so if you start at the start of the month they need to pull out their finger to get you on the system to get paid, this isn't usually a problem if you have given them your bank details, you can always ring payroll/HR to check they have you on the system once you start the job.

I think I must be from same neck of the woods as PandaNot as that's how my council work. County Hall are actually quite efficient here but it most definitely varies from county to county. I'm Durham, but in Northants I was left 2 months without pay, while a colleague was paid double her salary.

Depending on when you start ie what date you might miss payroll deadline which in my LA is 8th for phone /faxed info or 19th if your school does it's own payroll. So if your starting back on Monday you might not get paid January probably worth asking in the office ASAP. No good asking another teacher or the head.

Local authorities gave a cut off date to get payroll done. So as long as they had your paperwork before that date you'd get paid that month

I'm a teacher and have always been paid at the end of the first month when starting a new job.

Same as Panda, I was paid at the end of the first month.

aah maybe it varies from place to place?

I've always been paid at the end of the first month, county hall only need a weeks notice to pay someone here.

It still doesnt make sense-that would be two months in advance wouldnt it, if i started january and didnt get paid until end of feb!

ive just been told by MIL that for teaching jobs, you wont get paid for the first 2 months as you have to work a month in hand - so the school can 'apply' for your wages! Anyone know if thats true? It mentioned nothing in the contract (its a new job due to start after xmas hols) thanks people smile
