Returning to England

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by gina.parry, Mar 13, 2012.

  1. I am hoping to return to work in Enand in September after 3 years of teaching abroad (although this is proven more difficult then I thought!) will my pay be frozen from when I left England or continue to increase yearly?

    You will be placed on the pay point above the one you were last paid on in the UK, assuming that you completed at least 26 weeks of employment in your last school year in the UK.
    So, if your last year of teaching in the UK was on M3, for instance, any future teaching would have to be on M4 at least.
     
  4. I qualified in 1998 in the UK and have worked abroad in international schools since then. Induction yrs were not a legal requirement then so I know I don't need to do that but am thinking that I can only expect to come in on the bottom of the pay scale as I have not taught in this country. My 12 yrs international experience don't count here do they?

    No. Progression on the national pay scale is determined by service to local education authority schools.

    You will not be required to undergo Induction as you gained QTS before 7th MAY 1999.
    You have no automatic entitlement to more than M1 pay but are free to negotiate and ask any school that wants you to use their discretionary powers to pay you on a higher pay point. You would have more success with that if applying in a n area where your specialism is a shortage one.
