Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm not really with it. I am currently on MPS6 and have been for what feels like a million years. I have finally been able to secure a permanent post for September (Yay!). This means relocating but I am ok with this - I have found a lovely little house in a very peaceful part of the town. I digress.... How and when can I go up to UPS1? I've held a number of positions of responsibility in various schools (unofficially though - nobody wanted to pay the extra!). I am new to the authority - does that matter? I'm in my 9th year of teaching. I am willing to take on more responsibility (but it's a huge school and I doubt there is much room for progression). Just wondering if anyone can tell me the process of going through threshold. Thanks!
