Annotated Salary Scales

Teachers initial salary placement on appointment may possibly be higher than the indicated starting points.

This can occur if evidence of additional appropriate qualifications and / or relevant experience (e.g. teaching time in another school system) is presented to the DECYP and if it is accepted by them as warranting a higher initial placement. This is best done in conjunction with or very soon after appointment.
