SOOOO...I got a temporary job. But after 13 years am now being offered a salary as a probationary teacher. I’ve been told I will have this until the provisional is up but when I checked the GTCS it included previous teaching experience in the UK. I’m confused (and also unwilling to take an over £12k pay cut) does previous experience count? If so, why is GTC saying I’m provisional? If not, how long is this going to go on for? The council are saying that that’s it. I’m a probationer as long as I’m a provisional but wondered if anyone knew what to do or had been in a similar situation. Would literally earn more at Tesco’s at this rate!
