Hello, I've been working as an unqualified teacher and have just gained QTS (but not yet received official confirmation from the GTCE.) I'm on a permanent contract with my school and have been paid on the unqualified scale as point 2 since last September. I've read the School teachers pay and Conditions document paragraph 37 but I'm a bit confused as to what I should be being paid now and when I go back on September. If I do not receive official confirmation of QTS from the GTCE until the summer do I continue to be paid on my current salary, then once I hear from the GTCE do my school have to pay me a backdated lump sum to make up the difference between my current unqualified salary and that of qualified (Paragraph 37.2 and 3)? Also, what point scale should I be going onto? The way I read paragraph 37.1 is that the school could pay me on M1 as it is more than U2? Will I be eligible to go up a point in September? I'd really appreciate any help on this!
