GTP salary at an independant school?

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by mg2011, Mar 28, 2011.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I have limited classroom experience but have been accepted by a local independent school to do my GTP. The GTP will be a self-funded place which means the school will pay my course fee's and salary. We have however not yet discussed what the salary will be. Do anyone know if the usual salary bands apply to self funded placements or if i should expect to be offered a lower salary due to my minimal experience?

    If it is self funded it is up to the school how much or little to pay you, especially in an independent. Have the conversation as soon as possible. I am on the first rung of unqualified scale (15,817) doing my GTP, which is funded by the Uni.

    Independent schools have their own pay scales so you need to ask the school. They do not receive salary grants so have to fund the whole GTP themselves.
