In Scotland, there is no central bargaining mechanism and pay and salaries for FE staff are negotiated at a college level.
Pay rates for FE lecturers vary depending on the college they work in, and according to Careers Scotland range from £20,000 to £36,000 a year with the possibility of higher rates depending on role and responsibilities.
