    After working as a teacher for 17 years (13 USA, 4 UK), Im finding it difficult to get above M6. What do I need to do to get paid for the experience that Im bringing to the table. 17 years of teaching is a long time to be getting paid such a low wage for a QTS.

    I think you have to pass the threshold, and you do that in a job, not between jobs. Then yo have to pass performance management, in your job. Length of years teaching does not affect it.

    each has their own. Your HT has to agree you have passed the threshold, and that would be with a couple of years evidence. You could maybe get some evidence from a previous UK school? If it is from last year?

    Move abroad. In over 10 years teaching internationally i have NEVER earnt less than M6, dispite never actually completing my NQT year back in the UK. currently i am earning considerably more than anyone in the state sector, and im just a classroom teacher.

    Your experience would open a lot of doors
