Classroom Teachers are paid according to their years of experience in the teaching profession. A graduate commences at the CT1 level and progresses one increment each year until they reach CT9. 
 

Accelerated pay increases for beginning teachers

The Northern Territory’s Rapid Incremental Progression of Salary scheme allows beginning teachers to apply to progress through the standard teacher salary increment levels faster.

Under the scheme a beginning teacher has the opportunity to move to the CT4 level at the start of their third year of teaching when they meet the eligibility criteria which includes completing additional professional development.
