Apologies if this is not the right place to ask... I went from MPS 5 to the AST scale. I left the UK to teach abroad (due to my husband's non teaching job) and will return this summer. I'm currently looking at jobs and wondering what pay scale I would be looking at if I didn't take on a Lead Practitioner role. Would having been on the AST scale equate to UPS? If so, which point? Many thanks.
