  1. hi everyone,
    just wondering if you can help me. I'm currently on M5 moving to M6 in September. Do i need to apply for UPS in september for the following year or the September after? I'll be grateful for any advice on this.
    Thank you

    Previously you would apply while in your MPS6 year to progress through threshold. At present things are rather up in the air with the advent of the 'master teacher' and no one being certain of where that sits within the pay structure.

    As DaisyLot points out, change is in the air. Under the old rules, you could apply any time, by a letter or very short form, between September 2012 and October 2013. If I were you, I would leave it for a while to see what happens. If nothing is announced (unlikely IMO) then apply in the first half of 2013.

    You can make your application at any point when you are on M6, but any decision will be made after your M6 PM review has been finalised.
