International teaching post not relevant?

    I have been invited to interviews after teaching in an international school. Two of the schools I have applied at are stating that my referees and experience abroad are not relevant to the teaching post I have applied for. Therefore they are contacting a school I left 6 years ago for a reference and more information. When I asked them about pay, they said they would start me on M3, even though I now have 6 years teaching experience.

    The school I taught in followed the British Curriculum for KS3, then IGCSE and IBDP.

    Is this normal?

    Afraid so. Pay portability has been abolished - HTs are under no obligation to pay you to scale, even if you have been paid that in your previous post.

    What about the reference though?

    It's entirely up to the school which references they take up - however, I would still want a reference from your most recent school, if only to check there are no disciplinary issues OR (and this is v important) reasons why you shouldn't work with children.
