could someone clarify what the rules for salary are for OTT's who have become qualified is? I was under the impression that you transferred from the Unqualified scale to M-payscale according to how many years experience you have. However, I have been told that I will move upto the closest salary on the M-payscale from the Unqualified scale. There is obviously a gap in pay with the latter scenario and as I have just qualified would like a better understanding of what I am entitled to! Is this up to the discretion of the headteacher? Is there documentation to explain this? Thanks so much!
