Advanced Skills Teachers' payscales 2008-2009

Advanced Skills Teachers (ASTs) have their own pay spine, which ranges from £34,083 to £51,819 (£40,257 to £58,266 in inner London) at current rates. 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. ASTs get an increase in salary when the pay scales are uprated and may also be awarded extra points each September for high quality performance. 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.
