NQT to RQT pay change in another school

    I was just wondering about a pay rise from NQT to RQT.
    I completed my NQT year in one school, targets all passed etc and I know if I had of stayed in the school the pay rise would have got processed on October's pay and backdated.
    But I have left the school I completed my NQT year in and joining another in September. Will I get the move from M1 to M2 straight away or wait until October or at all...!

    Thanks guys,

    Did you discuss your salary at interview? That is what you will be paid.

    I didn't no. Just assumed that if I completed everything accordingly, it would rise to M2.

    Pay is no longer portable between schools which is why you should confirm salary prior to accepting a post. The majority of schools do operate a progression up the MPS scale based on meeting targets but it can be different in academies/free schools who have their own systems. Ask the school office for a copy of their pay policy- or you may find it on their website but progression can no longer be assumed as automatic.

    I have done the same, my contract shows a 10% increase from what I had at my first school. This could just reflect the increase in hours/different school. I'm going from an Academy to a Free School if that helps?

    You also will need to check that the 3.5 pay increase from September is added on top of any increase.
