Hi! I started my new role on June 1st as an NQT. When I was offered the role (in January), one of the 'perks' as such was that I would be paid from June and therefore paid over Summer. The reason for this was I was helping set up the Computing department in the school. (I'm a career changer and have experience setting up digital departments in industry). Anyway, when I had my contract through, the LA are actually paying me as Unqualified. When I questioned this they said that it was standard and they could only pay me as that until they received my QTS confirmation. My question is; will I get backdated pay when I get my QTS confirmation from the DFE (as my university have confirmed they're recommending me for QTS and I passed my PGCE). I've heard mixed responses on this? I feel like, considering I know I'm being recommended, it's a frustration that I am on a severely lower wage for 3 months. Thanks!
