Salary Assessment Unit
The Salary Assessment Unit has been set up in Christchurch to process all types of Teaching Staff Salary Assessments, Improved Qualifications and Service Credit Applications.
Teaching employees who are new or returning to the Education Payroll after a break in service from the Ministry of Education Service Payroll must complete an ESP7t application form.
All information relating to salary assessments must be posted to:
Salary Assessment Unit
School Support Ltd
PO Box 4044
All forms have been renamed and have a specific number:
- Teaching Staff Application for Salary Assessment (ESP7t)
- Teaching Staff Application for New/Improved/Additional Qualifications (ESP17t)
- Teaching Staff Application for Service Increment (ESP18t)
- Application for Childcare Credit (ESP19t)
To obtain a salary reassessment you will need to complete a Salary Assessment Form for Teaching Staff (ESP7t).
These forms are available on the Education Payroll website: www.schoolpayroll.govt.nz select forms and download the ESP7t application.
This application must be returned with certified copies of all the documents. This includes certified copies of all qualifications regardless of whether they have been assessed previously or not.
If you are presenting statements of service for teaching service credit purposes, these statements must contain a start date (day, month, year), finish date (day, month, year), description of service (full time or part time, if part time then the total hours or days worked must be detailed). Please note statements of service must be on the letterhead of the employer and be signed and dated by the writer. Anticipated "end" dates of employment are not acceptable and therefore statements of service must be written after the employment has ceased. If you are presenting copies, these must be certified. Photocopies of original documents are acceptable if clearly endorsed (certified), as true copies by a reputable person e.g. Solicitor, Justice of the Peace or Principal. The title of the person certifying the documents must appear on all certified documents as part of the certification process.
In the case of the Principal the certification should be accompanied by the official school stamp (if there is one). Note certification cannot be accepted from Board of Trustee members unless the applicant is a Principal returning to teaching. Also Deputy and Assistant Principals are unable to certify documents unless they are receiving the appropriate Acting Principal allowance.
