M1 pay scale and 10% release time

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by HeyGio, Jun 23, 2019.

    I've received a job offer from a school for maternity cover (6 months) in M1 pay scale. It's my first year of teaching in UK and, as I'm a overseas trained teacher, the induction period is not required.

    Am I allow to ask for the 10% reduction of teaching time in addiction to the PPA time as my contractual status is the same as NQT and it's my first teaching year?

    What do you think? is it my right or is it something that I could negotiate with the head teacher?

    You can always ask as the job is currently at the negotiating stage. You would need to justify why they should give it to you though, whilst M1 is usually what an NQT starts on, any new teacher can be offered it now.

    The law (*) says that only teachers legally required to serve an induction period are entitled to a 10% reduction in their timetable. As you aren't required to do that you aren't entitled to a reduced timetable. But as Stiltskin says, you can ask, anything is potentially negotiable!

    (*) In case you are curious, the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (England) Regulations 2012 paragraph 10 (4)
