I have been training as a teacher this year and am looking forward to starting my first teaching job on July 1st. My school were very open about the fact that they will pay me from then and therefore, I will be paid through the summer holidays! However, I have heard some people mention that schools sometimes pay NQTs the unqualified teacher salary rate until September. This hasn't been mentioned to me by my school at all. Is this the norm for NQTs who start in July? Is it it likely that this would be the case? Would they have mentioned this if it were the case? Thank you in advance for your help!
