You may wish to know a little more about changes to the spine points system. The AfC T&C's handbook is available by clicking on the relevant logo.

¶ The 2nd gateway in band 5 is at pay point 20 for 2011/12.

¶ If you look at the Agenda for Change handbook - at the bottom of each pay scale page it will tell you in what year’s the pay points were renumbered.

¶ What happened is that some of the lower pay points were eradicated, but instead of leaving the numbering of the pay points the same, they re-numbered them, which In total meant the ‘loss’ of two pay point numberings.

¶ The salaries were not changed though.  This happened in April 2009 and April 2010.

¶ We hope that this clarifies things for the Band 5 Advanced Technicians.

¶ If you have any further questions, please contact us and will we endeavour to help.
