Hourly-paid teachers

This section of the Human Resources website covers the key areas associated with employing and paying University Hourly-Paid Teachers (HPTs). Such staff are employed at the University of Bristol to teach students on undergraduate, postgraduate and lifelong learning programmes. Faculties/Schools offer work to an HPT for all hours of work required, and on the relevant role descriptor based on the duties. The hourly rate of pay relates to the University grading structure.

 

Policy for the Transfer of Hourly-Paid Teachers to Fractional Contracts (Part-Time Teachers)

Where Faculty/School/Professional Services have agreed that an individual Hourly-Paid Teacher is undertaking a substantial number of hours (at least 310 hours/0.2 full-time equivalent), and that the work is ongoing, then a fractional contract may be offered to the individual, to be known as a Part-Time Teacher. 

The Policy for the Transfer of Hourly-Paid Teachers to Fractional Contracts (Part-Time Teachers) has practical effect from September 2015.  For further information refer to the policyprocedure, and the Manager's Guidance for advice contact the relevant Faculty/Professional Services HR Manager.
