Previous teaching experience and main teachers payscale

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by music77, Mar 3, 2011.

  1. I did my PGCE in 2005 and gained 90 out of 120 credits. In my last of three placement schools there was a family trauma which left me unbalanced so I was advised to withdraw. Since that time one has been a supply teacher gaining valuable experience in many many schools. I now (2011) have an opportunity to continue/finish my teacher training which should take a few school terms hopefully in order to achieve full QTS status.

    My question is, once I gain full QTS status can I promote my experience in a future job interview at a school to be put on a higher pay scale than a starters teachers salary?

    Thanks.

    QTs is conferred via PGCE the NQT induction year ensures continuing teacher registration-currently via GTC. To gain an increase in salary you have to have been employed for 26 weeks in the previous school year by a school or LA- supply via agencies does not count
     
  4. It's the same question as those that were raised on another thread. You can ask, but you cannot demand, as there's no statutory duty to reward anything other than experience as a qualified teacher. There is certainly no harm in asking, in a nice sort of way on the interview day. Whether you get it or not depends on a number of factors, such as school budget, any direction from their LA, how competitive and how well you do on the interview. As an NQT, they have to give you extra 10% time off for induction purposes and support you in other ways, such as extra CPD courses and so on.
     
  5. Thanks for the replies people. One shall heed that advice. Ofcourse theres never any harm in professionally asking. Thanks again. Have a good day.
