teacher pay range

what is the difference between M1 M2 and 3 in the teacher pay band. What would you need to qualify for an M3 pay band instead of 1 or 2?

here's a link to the gov website with all the pay bands

Generally speaking newly qualified teachers go in at M1 and you advance one band for each year you teach, so M6 is what you get after 6 years. To progress above M6 you have to demonstrate that you have met certain additional duties over and above your regular teaching. You might be able to negotiate being paid one bad more than you are worth if you are able to teach a subject that is difficult to recruit for or work in a school in a hard to recruit area, but the government has already addressed this with retention payments and payments for shortage subjects in certain areas.

Hope this helps.
