Is anyone else working in an establishment where you have to complete a set of "performance descriptors" for UPS3 for each one of the National Teacher Standards? Thirty three in all as they are broken down into sub groups! I am not speaking about applying for UPS, I write as one who passed threshold when it was first introduced. I interpreted the STRB 2015 documentation that if you were appointed as a post threshold teacher prior to 2015 this was to remain but may well be wrong. I find, as a part timer, that I am challenged with this activity. I appreciate that it may well be that I am regarded as too expensive, but am interested to see what others have experienced. I am particularly interested to know where the Upper Pay Range reference points that we have to meet have come from as I can find no reference to them online. TheoGriff - any input would be welcome, but please be aware that the school does not appear to have an up to date pay policy, only a generic LA one.
