Pay Portability

For teaching posts only

The trust’s current Pay Policy guarantees pay portability for classroom teachers, providing the individual is able to demonstrate successful performance in their previous role. The following has been extracted from the Pay Policy for your information:

Teachers newly appointed to the trust

  1. The trust will guarantee a teacher’s pay portability for classroom teachers, providing the individual is able to demonstrate successful performance in their previous role.
  2. Successful performance can be demonstrated by a performance management statement (or other evidence) signed by a previous employer, confirming that performance has been successful during the last full performance management cycle. This would usually be the previous academic year.
  3. If a teacher cannot provide the evidence outlined above then a salary scale will be offered that reflects the individual’s experience, competence and impact on student outcomes. This will be evidenced in the recruitment and selection process and include information provided from referees.
  4. All information documented in this section will feature in recruitment literature and be explained during the recruitment process to ensure candidates are aware of the trust’s policy around pay portability. This will also be included in conditional offer letters, as part of the employment offer.

If you have a query with regard to pay portability, please speak to the HR Manager, Sarah Howarth on 01422 232032 or via recruitment@trinitymat.org.
