Excellence at UPS Programme

Who is it for?

Excellence at UPS is aimed at teachers in both primary and secondary schools who want to develop skills that will enable them to progress through the threshold to the Upper Pay Scale (UPS).

The focus of Excellence at UPS is on teachers’ practice, within their context and the impact of teaching and learning across different schools.

What are the benefits?

This programme provides a dedicated CPD opportunity for teachers wishing to progress through to the Upper Pay Scale. Content includes the appraisal process and the collection of evidence through the completion of a school based project. Teachers will be supported in reflecting upon their own practice and the impact on teaching and learning outside of the classroom. There will be opportunities for networking across the Alliance and the sharing of best practice.
