‘They pay sickness benefit pay.’
‘Both plans are good-TPS is more generous’
‘Timetabling is very flexible and the university is very accommodating. ’
Great university in the UK.
Holiday allowance increases plus time off over Christmas.
I have very conflicting feelings about working here. On the one hand, the hours and pay for the area are reasonable. Since COVID, managers have been very amenable and have been great allowing remote working. The community has a great feel. Staff are supportive and welcoming. Annual leave is good as well as holiday time of for clerical staff and lecturers. I’m told maternity leave is generous compared to competitors (which doesn’t affect me). The university has great connections within the local cities and makes a difference within the community. On the other hand, there are downsides, and these can been deal-breakers. There is little to absolute no career progression (unless you’re in academia). Even when promotions come by infrequently the positions are most usually filled by external candidates. Too much responsibility is given to agencies and little faith placed in the lower graded staff. The turnover is high because there is nowhere to progress to. Morale can get low because of this. As a university, and to be expected, there are no bonuses, rewards and such, so there’s not much motivation. Certain senior members are protected to save face rather than protecting a collective of staff members. If you’re looking to start a career or get a foot on the ladder, this is a great place to do so. (And then leave which most do). Similarly, if you’ve established your career it’s a great place to come into. I wouldn’t recommend it, however, if you wanted to start at the bottom and progress your way to the top of the university. Overall, it’s a great place to work but there are also negatives to consider. As with all places I suppose.
Good annual leave and pension

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

Agree? Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced Friday that parents will be given the choice of whether their children follow mask rules in school this fall, challenging federal guidance and local school districts in what critics called an “irresponsible” and “appalling” decision amid a surge of infections.

What if you are mandated for a Vaccine? We know there are different ways to look at this; moralistic, political, personal and professional. Never the less, I'm pretty sure of the dilemma each of us will face in the near future! I'm interested hearing what your thoughts if confronted?
great place to work with good rewards
Middle of the road benefits for a university. Parental leave pay and policies could do with an improvement.
Great holiday and pension benefits
We had to work 11 days to earn 1 day off but the work was flexible
Good pension, generous pay and holiday, some local discounts.
No other benefits other than salary in line with the sector
