modgepodgeSubject co-ordinatior of foundation subjects are rarely paid for their efforts. It's normally not optional and people are told its "good CPD". Part way through my NQT year I have been put on a subject leader team (of 2) leading 2 subjects, conveniently the 2 subjects I feel least confident teaching and have the least interest and experience in. Winner.
There is no distinction in the STPCD concerning core and foundation subjects, although your school may have put that into their Staffing Structure.
Look carefully at what you are being paid. It's not nearly enough for the work you do. It is total foolish to take on these responsibilities with these silly pay allowances. Now if you were given the time it might be another story !
