Since the rules about carrying your grade forward to another job, (is this true? It seems that there has been a change and shift away from this!) i have found it extremely difficult looking for another job! I am UPS and in my county, and neighbouring counties, jobs are only advertised as being MPS or even MPS 1-4! it looks like to further my experience of other schools, I have to take quite a huge salary cut! Has anyone else managed to apply for MPS jobs but managed to keep their current, UPS salary? I am not SLT and at the moment (young family) I do not intend to further my career towards SLT. I am part time, and only recently moved to this, but I will consider full time contracts for the right school but even so, I am expected to take a big cut in salary, sometimes as much as £10,000 for jobs I am interested in which is about a good third of my salary! Hoping someone can come along with some 'fairytale' news that my dilemma is simply non-existent and that it IS possible to find a MPS jobs and be paid my UPS(3) salary!!!
