Hi I wonder if someone could shed any light. I have recently accepted an offer for a HOD job Inner London from Outer London to start in September 2018. It was a strategic move to get a better remortgage deal. Anyway I haven’t got my contract through but I’m going from an academy to a LA and I am on the equivalent of UPS1 due to be on UPS2 following a successful appraisal, as I will have been on UPS1 for 2 years once I start. My first query is, should I expect the offer to include UPS2, if it doesn’t should I highlight as part of signing the contract? My second query is, are the pay scales staying the same as 2017-2018 for new academic year or is there due a further 1% pay rise? Thanks in advance.
