Payroll process overview

You need to submit weekly timesheets for daily or long-term supply work. We use both paper and online timesheet systems, so it is important that you are familiar with the processes for both.

Paper or online?
Which timesheet you use depends on the preference of the school you are booked at. If unsure, speak to your consultant before you leave the school.
Paper timesheets can be downloaded and printed from our website.

Submit a paper timesheet

Your timesheet must be signed by your school contact for you to get paid. Photocopy your completed timesheet, give a copy to the school, and send the original to us by either:

  • faxing to 020 8237 4424
  • scanning and emailing to payroll@protocol-education.com (TIFF or JPEG formats preferred)
  • posting to Payroll Department, Protocol Education Limited, 247 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 7QW

Or...

Submit an online timesheet
You will be notified by email once an online timesheet has been created for your booking.
Log into your Candidate Lounge account, check the timesheet is correct, and submit it for approval by the school.

Wait for your confirmation

When your paper timesheet is matched to a booking and confirmed for payment, you will be sent a text message confirmation. Alternatively, when your online timesheet has been approved by the school, you will receive an email confirmation. Timesheets must be received before 18:00 on Monday (following the week worked) for payment to go through that Friday.

No text or email?
If you have not received confirmation by Monday evening for every timesheet submitted for the previous week, please call the Payroll Department on 020 3219 7770 between 8:15 and 11am on Tuesday morning. During this time we will help track down the problem and rectify it in time for you to get paid as per normal.

Get paid!
If everything has been completed in a timely fashion, you will be paid on the Friday of the week after you worked.
