I have been a teacher since 2001 and simply by the amount of time in the profession, I should have made more progression than I have. However, by popping in and out of the state/independent sector I have missed the opportunity to proceed through to the upper pay scale. My current school has only recently adopted state pay and progression policy. So now I find myself trying to put together a portfolio of evidence to justify my request to progress up to the upper pay scale. So I was wondering, dear teacher friends, just what evidence should and shouldn't be used to help me. Any help is gratefully appreciated.
