DEAR THEO Advice needed on change from AST pay when taking job on MPS

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by silverlillies, Apr 20, 2012.

  1. Evening Theo (and all)
    I'm an advanced skills teacher looking for my next opportunity. I would appreciate advice on what would happen if I went for Head Of Dept with TLR 1?
    I've been an AST for 8 years and became an AST before going through UPS
    Advice given by a union rep when our school was being restructured was that being an AST was the equivalent of passing through the upper threshold so any change to my job would need to reflect that in what I should expect to be paid. I wonder- does the same apply if I took a move to a role in a new school and how would you broach this issue appropriately with the school?

    I'm sorry, but I am just not the person to ask about technicalities of pay!
    Go to the Pay and Conditions Forum, and start a thread called: Dear Tafkam - Theo says you will know this!
    My mate Tafkam is bound to know the answer!
    Best wishes
