Am a teacher myself and this is a lovely gesture. We rarely get offers like this and it may be worth actually considering teachers pay compared to other professions before commenting further.

We have to pay the extortionate holiday rates as we can only go during the holidays, so this is very handy! It's available at others as well, including the one in Brighton

Here go the whingers another deal for a particular part of the community..
I am not a teacher but know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for hardworking teachers who made sure I understood the subject even some of them gave extra time to me personally.... most of those I adored I heard have passed away bar one who lived near me he was so cool he loved Dr Who and until last summer he worked in the Dr Who shops in the city and now in his retirement has moved to Canada with his partner....

One Uni professor who interviewed me was a lecturer in his 80's and commuted by bike 10-12miles each way.... what a fit guy he didn't do it for money, but for passion, he only did it part time.... it was because of his teaching in my 1st year I understood statistics... R.I.P.

Another one of my Proffessor(R.I.P.) allowed me in his study room to learn Unix and gave guidance in career. This was after I graduated, he wasn't getting paid for it and for certain I didn't pay him.... just so that it will help me in my future..... He was a gem I will never forget...

Keep up the Good work because it's you who make future Dr's, Pilots, Scientists last but not least Teachers and Professors,
So they deserve all that is due to them.....

What is a teacher? I train younger chefs so am I not a teacher too? Teachers say they get it hard... try working as a chef working 80-90 hours a week. For a salary that can be less than minimum wage. Working unsocial hours and all the big days. Wish I had holidays and weekends off. Yeah you may get some grief off some students but do you work in a 40 degree kitchen? I love my job but don't complain about it.

I don't think that this is in any way trying to give back to deserving people. It's just a way to advertise to people who could bring hundreds of kids in at a later date. I can't imagine that a chef would have a 'school trip' there, so it's not really of any benefit to them.

They give incentives like this so teachers will consider taking a school party there on a trip. Feel free to argue your case, Mr Shrew, but the SeaLife Centre will be more inclined to welcome school teachers to learn about the sea life than chef trainees to eat them.
#28
A teacher is someone who gives up there time ( life) to help young people achieve their goals and dreams . If you think we get weekends off you obviously don't know a teacher. When you have spent a day in a classroom with 30 children then tell me about all the holiday we get.,., we are exhausted!! And yes you are a teacher , we didn't make the rules for this offer!
I've worked in a kitchen and no it's not fun in that heat and with that pressure but your boss doesn't then expect you to go home and work some more and then have a go if your sausages don't progress 2 levels. Your customers might complain but in my experience that was to the waitress. Oh and when you work out my hours working I'm on minimum wage too.
So fed up with people commenting about being a teacher when they have never done it.
Wow I'm grumpy ..... Need a holiday!!!
#29
I think you're missing the point if you are arguing about whether teachers deserve this or not. It's a loss-leader: they (Merlin) ran a similar offer with Blackpool Tower earlier in the year. They want the people who organise school trips (so, teachers) to come in and look at how good the place is and then book thirty-odd paying tickets next term when they are planning for their classes. Not a gesture at all, a promotion. A nice one to take advantage of if you can, mind, but still just marketing.

Complaining about teachers getting this free is churlish if you've ever had a free sample of anything that the company wanted you to keep buying later on.

How about you go get a degree, go to uni again to train as a teacher/ complete your NQT year and then teach food tech rather than being unhappy with your current situation. Instead of everyone being unhappy do something about your predicament! Also if you can't be bothered to get qualified then work in an academy as an unqualified instructor and enjoy the same holidays. You may be disappointed that you will need to work over those holidays and during evenings and weekends though. You will likely have to mark coursework, plan lessons, mark work and other preparation.

Everyone will hate you because they 'pay your wages', something that a GP, or MP wouldn't have shouted at them, strangely. The public thinks they are experts in education too, because they went there once when they were children.

Fortunately for you though you would be entering after Michael Gove got fired as Education Secretary, who made the job intolerable. Hopefully the new one will actually improve education for the future generation and work with teachers.

If the above sounds worth it then sign up!

I get sick of teachers living in a little bubble. I have around 10 friends who are teachers. They go on holiday every summer and go out Friday and Saturday, because they can afford it. Teachers don’t do 12 hour days every day, they do work extra hours some days yes. Plus even if they work close to those over exaggerated hours there pay compensates. 25K start. Not only that, they have so much spare time, although of course they are unimaginably busy for the entire summer really 'wink wink'.

What gets me is when they compare other wages like they are mistreated or mention what 'good' work they are doing….charity workers, nurses, paramedics, care workers, youth workers etc. I never hear them moan about what they have to deal with."Try working in a classroom of 30 children" Try most other professions! The things paramedics deal with, care home staff building bonds and regularly see them gone in the morning. Your not the only workers virtually forced into overtime/shift cover - Try a being care worker (more than 10k under your wage). Not everyone has the circumstances to go to College and University as they have to work full time.

Plus Teachers seem to forget they chose that profession. I'm sure it's not because they have at least a full week off work every other month… full pay of course. One of the best pensions (I worked in pensions) the best Maternity pay in the public sector by a LONG shot (yet still teacher friends were moaning about that) and a ridiculously large sickness scheme. Basically, teachers shut up moaning, yes you have bad aspects of your job that you chose but you have it a damn site better than some below you.

You clearly don't know what you are taking about as you aren't a teacher?
You are one of those that thinks they know what teachers do every minute of the day when actually you don't have a clue.
Even if you are in a low paid job you can still do a part time degree and work hard to get qualified rather than wishing that everyone earns the same wage as you do.
The can't recruit enough teachers to keep up with the labour turnover. If it's such a walk in the park then why do a large proportion of new teachers leave the profession soon after starting?

@escortboy (nice name by the way) That's because they can't tolorate the kids.

Yes I do, as stated as too many of my friends are teachers and after a few drinks, the pretence that all teachers seem to inherit when getting the job, drops.

And no I don't earn such a low wage but many do.

This is it, the teachers culture, the teachers mentality of how they work so hard and deserve so much more.

You get enough, the job has it's many bad points but it's has also many, many redeeming features. It's a job, you work hard you get paid well.

Sick of this constant self righteousness and martyring. Just put or shut up. Don't start with the 'work hard for a degree' rubbish because you can get a degree in media studies, do 12 months in edge hill then your sorted. 3 years getting drunk, then Sept to April studying. Yes I went to uni. Don't even pretend after 2-3 years you don't just recycle most of planning.

And no I don't get paid as low as the previous jobs mentioned, just don't feel the need to squeeze more cash and benifits when I have enough. So I'm guessing you do deserve more?

It's not even about the money, just quit or be quiet.

I'm not trying to make out that getting your first degree is difficult for the majority of people academically-wise I was making the point that if individuals are unhappy with their lot in life they can change it. I was referring to someone without a degree that can't do it because life gets in the way. I was saying they could do a degree through distance learning part time and then train to be a teacher after that so that they can have the dream that is being a teacher.

I'm not self-righteous or martyring, I care about education and am passionate about it. I doubt you have worked in a school closely with a teacher to have insight beyond chats with friends or your own school experience. I wouldn't know exactly what a solicitor does on a day to day basis on that same token, however they don't have adverse changes every other week and interference from government.

Remember when doctors unions were unhappy? Are they self righteous martyrs also?
You said people don't do teaching because they can't stand the kids, could we apply that same argument to a doctor but 'I can't stand blood'?

I love your closing comment of 'shut up, or f*** off' also. I wish I could give you some equally insightful careers guidance also.

I am amazed at how completely incorrect your post is. Yes, teachers choose to join the profession, because they want to educate and inspire, they did not choose the crap that comes with the job.

They do not have a fabulous pension, nor amazing maternity pay (I would look at doctors for that); the sick pay is used because the job and exposure to germs all day eventually will have an effect (but very few teachers actually dare have a day off ill, even if they do they will still be working; at least one day of the weekend will be spent planning, marking or report writing; and the amazing holidays actually come down to probably 5 weeks a year where work isn't being done.

A starting salary of £22k is more realistic, for this teachers are judged by senior managers, parents and the students. They are required to produce exciting and interactive lessons for a range of different abilities, ages and needs, ensuring that everyone meets 'expected' progress regardless of any external factors (i.e. pupil attendance, etc). They need to maintain thorough data on progress, attendance, behaviour and planning, write reports, attend parents evenings, make phone calls, organise and run extra curricular activities and revision sessions, watch corridors during 'break', mark work, plan lessons and act in loco parentis.

Your friends may go out every Friday, but they will more than make up for that one night of de-stressing elsewhere. They may have a holiday every year, but you do not state where, you do not know what other saving they may do or what their partners do that may contribute to funding this. In other words, unless you intimately know your friends' lives and finances you cannot know what they do.

Teachers are dedicated and inspiring people who are under appreciated by society, this has made the job tougher. Think before you speak, after all, if you can read this you have a teacher to thank.

I work for a private company. I have a degree, I have studied additionally also. In my sector you don't get perm contracts, you just can. No sick leave, no maternity and no pension. They sack you just before the 2 yrs rights kick in.
I eat through my lunch, I work in the early hours, first in last out, work from home, I could also state every aspect of my position as you have, because believe or not, everyone has a lot of duties in a respectable position. But I think that your missing the point of what these guys are complaining about. It's not that you don't work hard, they understand you do, it's the way you believe you are being so underhanded in comparison. Example, maternity was mentioned, you stated 'look to Drs' I worked on implementing a system for the public sector and I did the pay calculations for a large council. Every public sector worker got 2 weeks full pay on maternity pay, then it started to reduce. (Including CEO) teachers for 6 weeks full pay, then reductions started.
Basically teachers got the premium whilst all other works got less. So to compare the pay to drs is a little ignorant.

I get you want to do the job to inspire, so why are there so many strikes for pay- surely that's just a bonus (as higher than living wage?) as it's for the love.

From what I can tell is they acknowledge the fact that you work hard. But just look at the bigger picture, there is a finite budget. Other people are really struggling in this world who have worked/work hard, inc people trained as a teacher who can't get a job, but end up in a admin role on minimum wage. Your not the only ones going through hardship.
