New: "Employed Postgrad Charter"

NPC has recently produced an Employed Postgraduates Charter to outline the employment rights for postgraduates who teach in post 1992 institutions. In addition to the charter for pre-1992 institutions this provides a valuable resource which can be used as the basis for a policy at your HE institution. The charter covers a number of basic entitlements that the NPC believes should be available to postgraduates employed within HE institutions, these include; fair and equal access to employment opportunities, adequate study time, full induction training, nationally agreed pay levels and pay for all responsibilities and work undertaken.
