    Hi, I am a NQT and am in the extremely lucky position that I have just been offered a permanent position when my one year temporary contract comes to an end. The offer is worded as being "under the same conditions as now" which I assume is referring to hours and pay etc. My question is this: I am 43 years old with much prior school experience (voluntary parent helper for years and then TA/HLTA whilst I gained my degree). I have read that Pay can be increased dependent on relevant experience. Would I have a case to approach my HT and ask to go up the Pay Scale? (The main reason I need to do this is because my husband was made redundant last year and is starting up his own business, so we are living off my income at the moment - any extra I can get would obviously help enormously). If anyone could let me know whether asking for an increase in Pay is realistic, that would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I always say there's nothing to stop you asking; however, as you've been employed for a year in the first instance, it's extremely unlikely they will increase your pay now. Why should they? The time to ask for a higher pay point is at the beginning of your employment.
