When the pay rate says “depending on qualifications” the lower rate is for people who do not have a Level 2 Diploma/NVQ in Health and Social Care and the higher rate is for people who have a Level 3 Diploma/NVQ.

If you do not have a Level 2 when you are appointed then you will complete your Care Certificate and start working towards your Level 2. Once you have your Level 2 you will receive an extra 15 pence per hour. After the Level 2 you can choose if you want to complete your Level 3. On completion of a Level 3 you will receive an extra 20 pence per hour. After 18 months of satisfactory service you will receive a further pay rise of 25 pence per hour.

If the pay rate says “fixed rate” then it doesn’t change due to qualifications gained or length of service.
