Starting to teach, managing groups of pupils and becoming a confident member of a school and its community are challenging tasks. The NUT believes that induction must support and aid these processes, not create additional burdens for new teachers.
The NUT’s guide to induction will answer your questions about your induction period. We hope you find it useful.
Note: the induction arrangements set out in this guide, due to come into effect from September 2012, are subject to change pending completion of government consultation exercises in England and Wales.
Pay and Conditions
This guide provides all the information you need on teachers’ salaries, pensions and conditions of service.
It also sets out all the benefits and services which the NUT provides for its members.
Every year the Government publishes the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD). This sets out statutory requirements for teachers’ pay and conditions in maintained schools in England and Wales. Many academies also apply STPCD conditions.
This guide answers your questions about directed time and sets out NUT policy on issues affecting workload such as planning, meetings, classroom observation and class size.
