    So I'm currently doing my first year of the Teach First LDP, and so I am paid by my school as an unqualified teacher. I am currently paid on Scale 2 as an unqualified teacher, does that mean that next year when I am qualified my school will pay the Scale 2 salary for qualified teachers?

    Not necessarily - check with your school - they may start you as an NQT (M1) since you would be a Newly Qualified Teacher....

    Hullo there and welcome to the forum.

    In Ye Olden Dayes there were national payscales, and national rules for who got what when.

    Nowadays there aren't. Neither of these. So it all depends on your school's Pay Policy.

    No more Pay Portability, no more pay scale, no more automatic moving up the scale.

    Best wishes

    I think it likely that they will pay you at the bottom of the main pay scale, but that is up your school. BTW, M1 does not equal NQT - in theory somebody could stay on M1 for years or an experienced teacher could be given M1 when starting a new job.
