Hello, I've just finished my probation year in Modern Languages and am about to start a new post at a new school within the same local authority. I did a year abroad during uni as a British Council Language Assistant and have been told that having done that allows me to now jump a level on the pay scale, from 0 to 2. Does anyone else, particularly in Scotland, have experience of getting this or know someone who has and how did they go about it? I dont want to approach my local authority directly without some sort of evidence as experience has told me that they are likely just to fob me off with a flat, "no," if they think they can get away with paying me less! Thanks, T.
