    HI all,

    We have recently had a review and the external consultant has suggested that all of the staff are paid at FE not HE rate, but remain in the University? Please could you confirm whether any of you are paid at FE rate but are situated in HE ?

    I look forward to receiving your comments.

    • Hi Emma. Only just spotted your post. This seems to me to be an extremely problematic recommendation, for a whole host of reasons, and is of course particularly pertinent when we consider previous arguments around the funding of FYs and their ‘preferred location’ within an HE or FE context. I will email you ‘off-line’ for further background if that’s OK by you. In the meantime, if anyone else is aware of FY staff being paid on an FE salary scale whilst situated in an HE context, it would be very helpful to have this info – whether posted here or emailed seperately to Emma (and if you are willing, to me too at w.kitchen@sheffield.ac.uk)
