As a relief assistant educator, I don't want to 'rock the boat' with my employer regards this pay rate query hence here it is for you to ponder:):
I would like to know where you think I fit into the pay scale. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood, along with a 4 year Bachelors in Primary Education and Queensland Teacher registration (therefore I have ECT status). Since starting with my Centre at the beginning of the year - before I completed my Diploma - I have been on a relief assistant educator salary of $22.10 per hour. This pay rate did not change in July and has not changed since I presented my employers with my Diploma and Teacher Registration status. Is this correct? Does pay rate not automatically change once you acquire a relevant qualification? Are they allowed to carry on paying $22.10 (Qld) casual rate per hour as it appears to be below the rate that you have included in your wages table?
I look forward to hearing from you:o)
