Hi, I have recently been offered and accepted my first role for when i become an NQT. I was recently told that as a maths teacher and thus being a shortage subject i should normally start on pay grade 2. I did not know during my interview when to approach the pay issue as this was my first interview and i was happy to be offered the job. My question is when do you approach the topic of pay? I understand that talking about pay before, in the actual interview makes it look that you are more for the money than the job.Taking into account that you have already said that you are a firm candidate (and essentially accepted the job), if its offered its considered a done deal. I am just really confused as to the general rule of discussing pay. I approached this with the school that i am to be working at and they said they will only pay pay scale 1, but i suppose i am happy as i managed to secure a July start so will be paid through out the summer. Can anyone offer any advice as to when to discuss this for potential future interviews?
