I was on U1 before being promoted in my school to Assistant Head and so am now on the Leadership pay scale. After 4 years as AHT (and having filled in my Outlook calendar for the year...) I am considering a move back to classroom based teaching. However, the move to and then progression up the Leadership scale means that I haven't applied to move onto U2 or U3 in the past few years. I guess I'd go back to U1 and that AHT experience would be used to move up to U2 at the next opportunity. Does anyone have experience of this or could clarify? Much appreciated!
