Dear Sage

  1. At what point does your pay increase? I'm an NQT (since 2010) and I've been doing supply since. If I were to secure a post for September, would I start on M1?
    Many thanks

    It depends on the nature of your supply work.

    If you're one of the very lucky ones employed by a local authority and paid to the scale then you'll get the increment to M2. (providing you've worked at least once a week for 26 weeks as I understand it).

    If you're working for an agency, then you've no entitlement under the pay scale and will get what you can negotiate for at interview. Unless you really shine at interview and you're teaching a subject or age range that it is hard to recruit for in your area, that's likely to mean M1.
     
  4. It does depend on how you were paid. i.e. local authority or direct by the agency or direct by an academy. There are rulers on pay and progression for those employed by the LA which, as noted above, mean that any employment in each of 26 seperate weeks would mean an automatic progression to M2. If you are not paid by the LA then you may not getan automatic rise. That said, a school is free to appoint you on M2 or higher if they wish and if you can make a case. I do know of a NQT who started on M6 as he had considerable industry experience, was a physics specialist and had been a senior executive in a medium sized company - he was also a great teacher!
