Reposted from another forum as was told I might get more luck here. Sorry if this seems a daft question, but I’m unable to find anything online to help me. I understand probationers are paid on Point 0 of the scale and then obviously your pay goes up the longer you teach. How long is it between pay scales before you go up? I’m no longer a probationer, but I am still on Point 0. How long do I need to be teaching before I go up a scale? Also, do you need to be in a long-term or full-time job for this to happen? I’m currently on a year long maternity cover. Thank you.
