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.
