Not sure how the English system compares to the Scottish one but re-posting for traffic... Hi folks, I need advice before I contact the council regarding my proposed salary. I have recently started with a new council in Scotland on a 0.6fte contract. The contract states my salary will be £27438 fte - common scale point 1. With my former council I was on Point 6 of the teacher scale, with manyyears experience, so my question is, do I drop down the scale having simply moved councils or have they made a mistake? 0.6 of £36480 is a far cry from 0.6 of £27438! Any advice gratefully received Duff.
