I'm looking for a job for September, as an NQT. Finger crossed.... I'm wondering, at what stage would it be appropriate to try and negotiate a starting salary above MP1? I'm a mature student, with years of TA and other school experience, I have a first class degree in Education and have almost completed my MA in Education (I'll finish it during my NQT year if I'm fortunate enough to get a job for September). Would it be appropriate to try and negotiate? If so, when do I try and negotiate, and how? Thanks!
