What will happen to pay for other main scale teachers? Will teachers on M4 suddenly get about the same as an NQT? Will there be a much smaller gap between pay between top and bottom of the main scale or will those higher up the scale get more pay too? If not, surely the retention crisis will just shift to the more experienced teachers who will resent the lack of acknowledgement of their contribution to the profession compared to NQTs'. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this!
