The NUT pay toolkit is a set of advice documents for NUT members and NUT representatives intended to help teachers secure pay progression, by taking collective action to resist pay policies which would reduce rates of pay progression or by pursuing and winning appeals against decisions that individual teachers should not progress.
This year will be the first when pay progression for all teachers will depend on appraisal outcomes and criteria set by schools. Taking action to challenge pay policies collectively or appeal decisions individually will be essential to help protect teachers’ pay.
This joint guidance from the Local Government Association and the teacher unions sets out pay scales for 2014-15 for use by schools. It includes an updated 6 point Main Pay Scale, 3 point Upper Pay Scale and 43 point Leadership Pay Scale.
This NUT member survey report investigates pay progression decisions for September 2014 and teachers’ views on the impact and fairness of the new pay framework, and shows that NUT fears about cuts in pay progression and about potential bias and discrimination appear to be justified.
This NUT guidance considers the statutory provisions governing teachers’ pay and sets out NUT advice, in particular on the use of discretionary powers on pay, to help school governors and head teachers treat all teachers fairly. It should be used in conjunction with the joint NUT-NASUWT model school pay policy and school pay policy checklist.
Read the joint advice published by NUT, ATL, NAHT, UCAC and Voice on the September 2015 pay increase following Nicky Morgan’s announcement earlier this week. The joint advice will be arriving in all schools shortly. Use it to confirm with your head teacher and governors that all teachers will get the appropriate pay increase from September. The NUT will support members in any school which refuses to pay the increases set out in the joint advice.
You might want to edit and send this letter to your head teacher.
This NUT briefing is aimed at new teachers and those returning to teaching service as classroom teachers after a break. It explains the basics of the pay structure and gives advice on ensuring you are fairly paid and able to seek the most favourable use of pay discretions.
This NUT guidance document is part of an NUT toolkit for NUT members and NUT representatives on pay progression. It gives advice on how the pay progression system for classroom teachers works. It should be read in conjunction with the rest of the NUT toolkit on pay progression, which includes separate guidance documents on assessing and challenging school policies on pay progression and on pursuing appeals against denial of pay progression.
This NUT guidance gives advice on Teaching and Learning Responsibility Payments (TLRs), including the relevant provisions of the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) 2014, which all local authorities and governing bodies are required to follow, and NUT policy and advice.
