Help with an hourly rate question

Postby Sophia » Thu Sep 18, 2008 11:56 pm

A German friend of mine has been asked to quote on doing craft classes for children and teenagers (knitting, felting, wirework type stuff). As she has never done this sort of work in the UK can any of you give any indication of what sort of rate would be reasonable.

She is a graduate with an MA, also a qualified goldsmith (German trained) and also has a certificate in Adult Education.

Many thanks in advance,

Soph :D

Don't know if this is of any help but here are some hourly rates that I use in my job for cost calculations

Special Needs Assistant £6.45
Part-time teacher £25.10

To which I would add 19% on costs for NI, pension etc.
I would expect to pay more in the London boroughs.

Cheers

John

Don't forget to factor in the travel.
And that counts time for travel as well as petrol/train fare etc.

Hi John - why 19%? I'd have picked 20 as it's an easier number to work with...

I would charge, nowadays, £25.00 per hour, plus travel expenses. 10 years ago, the LCF was paying more than £20.00 per hour for teachers in the fashion/costume business!!

Dunno why 19% that's the figure I was given by our accountant.

Agree that you should also add on expenses etc.

We must meet up for me to collect the arrow baskets. Guildford on 7th Oct?

A plan...
We just need to slow it down a bit- the planet that is, if we could have about thirty hours in each day ( and the energy to fill them) I reckon that would about do it. If they stopped farting about colliding their Hadrons, we might be able to get it sorted!

No don't be daft. I don't mind honestly. I know they are a pain and I exploit the maker remorselessly - I'm really evil - still must look on the bright side......I think they use renewable energy in Hell and they won't be charging me for the bills :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

So i can't wear my thick jumpers in hell then?
Aw flip! That is one of the things I really enjoy about this house being too expensive for me to heat- apart from the front room... Thick snuggly jumpers.
Do you think we could do a deal with the horned one in exchange for some geothermal connection pipes?
British Gas dealings are very similar to those of the fallen angel, so in for a penny...

Could always try being good, but it looks so chilly up in those clouds.

Just in answer to your thread referring to hourly payment.
I'm taking this from the cross college pay scales that would dictate most University's and school's payout schemes.

At the moment, most college follow an incremental and pay visiting workshop artists on the same scale as senior lecturers which would be between £24.78 and £36.50 per hour (add your 20% on top to cover tax removal)

Universities have been known to pay up to £60 per hour for skilled and trained visiting lecturers.

Schools are dependent on the format - comprehensive or Privately funded. Comp's are covered by the government so less money there - you best option would be to charge an inclusive fee complete with covering tax removal and travel. Private funded are on much the same increments at FE colleges as each department has a separate budget.

I would aim for no less than £25 per hour (add on top of that your travel cost and tax allowance so that you are taking home the exact hourly rate)
Hope that helps

Are you counting just the hours you are with the children or the actual hours taken out of your life?
For me it looks like 9 til 3 with an hour off for lunch =5 hours
In fact it's a morning's worth of office work, an afternoon of preparation,
leaving the house at 6 or 6.30am and not getting home until 5 or 6pm = 18 hours.

I've just moved into a new studio and as it's quite large running various classes. i've had a lot of interest from different tutors and the cost seems to be about £180 a day which we are averaging out over the number of students we expect to book in

I'm also doing some occasional pt teaching at a local uni and being paid just under £40ph, which seems about standard
