Advanced skills teacher pay scales
(Unchanged from 2010)
Advanced Skills Teachers (ASTs) have their own pay spine and each AST is paid within a five point range based primarily on the nature of their work, the scale of the challenges to be tackled, the professional competencies needed and any other recruitment considerations.
The AST grade offers excellent classroom teachers the opportunity to continue teaching and use their skills to enhance the performance of other teachers. The pay spine reflects the fact that the grade is an alternative career path to taking up a leadership or management post.
