POLICY
GUIDELINES
The annual performance and salary review of
Senior Lecturers (COE) and Principal Lecturers
(COE) on Teacher Education Fellow salary scales,
2014
This document outlines the procedures for assessing the performance and reviewing the salaries of Senior Lecturers (COE)
and Principal Lecturers (COE) on band 2 of the Teacher Education Fellow salary scale appointed on or before 1 March 2014
ELIGIBILITY
Senior Lecturers (COE) and Principal Lecturers (COE) appointed on or before 1 March 2014 are required to participate in
the annual performance and salary review.
Staff members on the top of the salary scale are required to undertake a performance review even though there can be no
salary review associated with it.
Staff members on fixed term positions are required to undertake a performance and salary review unless it is unlikely that
their employment agreement will extend beyond 1 February 2015.
PROCESS
The Manager, Promotions and Remuneration, Human Resources, advises all eligible staff of the annual performance and
salary review and provides them with the appropriate documentation.
The Manager, Promotions and Remuneration, Human Resources, advises the Dean of any Senior Lecturers (COE) or
Principal Lecturers (COE) eligible for the annual performance and salary review.
Senior Lecturers (COE) or Principal Lecturers (COE) on band 2 of the Teacher Education Fellow salary scale and appointed
on or before 1 March 2014 are required to prepare a statement noting their particular contributions to teaching, research
(and/or advances in knowledge and professional practice) and service to the University and the community since their last
performance review, promotion or progression.
This statement of achievements helps decision-makers determine if staff members are performing satisfactorily.
Staff members applying for additional increments on the salary scale as part of the University academic promotion round are
not required to provide a list of achievements. It is enough to note on the form that they have applied for promotion. The
Dean is not required to make a recommendation about a salary progression. Instead the Divisional Promotion Committee
will consider the progression if the promotion application is unsuccessful.
ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION
The Dean may require further supporting evidence such as a University of Otago CV, student evaluations of teaching or
other forms of evidence relating to teaching.
The Pro-Vice-Chancellor may require additional evidential requirements to reflect the particular needs of their Division.
Staff should consult their Dean about specific requirements in their School or Division.
STAFF MEMBERS ON PARENTAL LEAVE
Staff members taking parental leave should be reviewed. Heads of Departments should assess the staff member’s
performance during the months that they were at work over the review period. The underlying principle is that staff
members should not be disadvantaged by taking parental leave.
If it is possible, the staff member anticipating parental leave should prepare their statement of achievements prior to their
departure.
SALARY PROGRESSION
Staff members who are assessed as performing at a satisfactory level for their point on the salary scale will progress one step
up the Senior Lecturer scale.
Please note that staff seeking more than a single step salary increment must apply for promotion under Schedule 1 of the
Academic Staff Promotion Policy – applications close 8 May 2014.
DECISIONS
The Pro-Vice-Chancellor approves salary increases for Senior Lecturers (COE) and Principal Lecturers (COE) if they are
satisfied that their performance is satisfactory.
Decision-makers advise the Manager, Promotions and Remuneration, Human Resources, of the decisions.
The Manager, Promotions and Remuneration, Human Resources, will write to staff members advising them of the outcome
of the salary review.
