Restricted applications for jobs?

  1. In this week's TES I noticed that Fife, Midlothian and North Lanarkshire Councils were offering salaries of £25,716-£34,200. Does this mean that Chartered Teachers are not welcome to apply? Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council offer up to £41,925 (CT salary).

    Obviously,you'd need to check with those particular LAs but I've always see non promoted jobs advertised with salalries on the "normal" payscale. I don't think this means CTs are not allowed to apply.I assume their salaries will be adjusted to reflect CT status once they have been appointed.

    When would you tell them you are a chartered teacher, before or after you get the job offer?

    I assume you would put it in your application form as a selling point?
    I've noticed Aberdeen City put in the salary to CT pointage but for instance,Aberdeenshire doesn't. I really do not think that it means that the Shire doesn't welcome CTs. In fact,out of those 2 LAS,City is the one with the worst financial problems.

    In today's climate the chances of an LA hiring a CT when there are a bucketfull of teachers on point 1 of the main grade scale are virtually nil.
