Hi, I am currently working overseas and just approaching the end of my 8th year. I am hoping to head back home in the UK in another two years. It only feels like yesterday when I was posting on these forums asking about what life of work is like in the sunny middle east, how quickly time has passed. Before leaving the UK I reached MP6, I did not go through the threshold to secure the UPS L1. On return, I am wondering where I would be placed on the pay scale: I did six years in the UK and was a QTS holder, HOD position/BTEC Co-ordinator Overseas I will have done 10 years, I have maintained a very good professional development record, taught IGCSE/A Level British curriculum and held middle leadership/school wide roles (SLT) I will have 16 years teaching experience in total I just looked at the NUT website at the payscales and I know I have to face a drop in salary and I dreaded calculating what I will have left after paying all the bills/taxes etc Based on my experience, is anyone able to suggest what pay Ievel I am likely to be expecting? Would they consider me for UPS and at what level?
