I am considering applying for a vacancy at a school in Guernsey, but I am wondering about the pay scale, as I get contradictory information. The ad says that 'Pay scales on Guernsey are higher than in England and Wales and the Upper Pay Scale (UPS) has been fully funded to UPS3. From the point of view of taxation personal allowances are larger (currently £16500 pa for a married couple) and there is a flat rate of income tax of 20%. Teachers can transfer their pension rights into (and out of) the Guernsey scheme'. I have read from a previous post that an NQT (which I would be) can only expect about £14000 per year, but the above seems to indicate it would actually be slightly higher than in mainland UK (which is around 20k). Can someone actually tell me how much I should expect?
