Leadership pay scale

    Hi I'm considering applying for an assistant head position advertised as Leadership point 4- 9. My question is would I have to start at point 4 or could I use current experience as a case to start higher up.
    I'm currently on UPS3 and with a TLR 2B point 4 would actually be a slight drop.

    You can ask, but there's no 'entitlement', I'm afraid. Quite often, teachers take a pay cut to go on to leadership.
    If you're an outstanding candidate, however, it is certainly worth asking.

    Thanks for your help. I understand there's no entitlement or guarantee but was wondering if it was even possible for a school to start you at higher than the bottom of the advertised scale.

    Yes, indeed it is.
