    I am a Modern Languages teacher and want to find out if completing the British Council Language Assistant programme counts as enough relevant teaching experience to advance one point on the salary scale? Any comments/feedback regarding this would be much appreciated.

    It really depends on the local authority on what they deem as acceptable and it is a very subjective process.

    I know of 2 people who went into teaching after career in industry with the same amount and type of experience. One LA gave 4 increments and the other gave 2.

    Depends on what you mean by completing the programme. I worked for 2 years as an English Language assistant and was awarded either 1 or 2 increments, 2 I think, but that was back in 2006 before they were desperately trying to save money. One authority gave me the increments but a second one didn't, however I enquired and the second rang the first and awarded them as well.
    In your case I would say there's no harm in asking.
