Advanced skills teachers
The government abolished advanced skills teacher (AST) posts with effect from 31 August 2013.
Any AST in post as at 31 August who was eligible to progress to the next point of the AST pay range must be considered and, if successful, moved to the next point on the AST pay range for 2012. This new salary will help to calculate any safeguarded sum payable.
Fore more details about this and the changes to teachers' pay in England and Wales, see ATL's FAQs.
