Hi, I have seen a job I really want and it is only advertising a pay scale of MPS. I was at the maximum of the MPS scale four years ago and went abroad to work in British International Schools for 4 years and have excellent results in my A level subject. I believe if I had been in the UK I would now be on UPS2 and moving on to UPS3. First of all is that true or will schools ignore my experience abroad and only consider UPS1? Secondly am I effectively barred from applying from the job I want to apply for at MPS as if they gave it to me and I accepted the lower salary they would be in breach of union regulations - which means they won't consider me?
