NQT and MPS?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by henryoakley, Jan 11, 2011.

  1. Hi, I was an NQT, I had a contact for a full year but became seriously ill in the last term and missed just over 30 days. I'm better now and my NQT year was extended for another term so that I could complete it, starting whenever I start my next perm position (I'm supplying at the moment, while I find something.) So, I completed and was paid for a full year at MPS1. When I start a new role, will I move onto MPS2, or will I stay at MPS1 until I have redone the last term of my NQT year? If I do stay on MPS1, will this just be until I complete the NQT extension and then I'd move sight on MPS2, or will I be stuck on MPS1 for the whole year? Anyone any info on this? Thanks

    The fact you missed days due to illness is irrelevent, you were employed for a full year, so you will move onto MPS2 when you start another suitable job. Passing your NQT year has no impact on pay, in fact someone on a tiny contract, e.g. a 0.15 could reach MPS6 before completing their induction year.

    I suggest that you read the information on www.tesfaq.co.uk it may help you understand your rights/obligations better and be better informed about your employment!
