    Please can you advise me on how long it takes to get from M6 to Upper 1? Is it the normal 1 year progression to get to Upper 1 from M6, or is it a 2 Year progression, (as is the case for Upper 1 to Upper 2.) Thanks for any help.

    To get from M6 to UPS 1 you need to apply to go through threshold, which is dependent on achieving the post threshold standards. It is not an automatic progression as progression through M scales is.
     
  4. Be wary of moving from MS to UPS as I know of teacher's who can't get a job outside London cos they're 'too expensive'.
     
  5. I meant ' teacher's who say...'

    I would agree with the too expensive thing...if you really want to be a primary classroom teacher for a long time then be prepared to stay in the same school. Many jobs are advertised as M1-M6 only and those that aren't often go to cheaper staff.

    However if your next school move will be for a promoted post or you are happy where you are then go for it as soon as you meet all the standards.
