Three new DfE guidance documents have been published, a product of the talks between the DfE and the teacher unions secured by NUT members’ action. These new guidance documents, below, are products of our strike action on 26 March.
Attached is a copy of the final version of the September 2014 STPCD, an NUT guide to the main changes to the 2014 Pay Document, a Union circular about the 2014 STRB Report, the September 2014 teacher pay scales and updated DfE advice ‘Implementing your school’s approach to pay’ (Sept 2014).
This NUT guidance gives advice on the statutory provisions on pay for leadership teachers – including the new leadership pay framework from September 2014 - and on NUT policy and guidance on setting leadership pay.
The NUT’s December 2013 submission to the STRB, which reaffirms the NUT’s view that teachers’ pay levels need to be increased significantly. The NUT submission rejects the Government’s public sector pay cap. It calls on the STRB to assert its independence and make recommendations on pay to secure the supply of teachers and address growing problems of recruitment, retention and morale.
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 gives advice on Upper Pay Scale (UPS) progression in order to help governing bodies and head teachers ensure that decisions on teachers’ pay progression are made fairly and objectively.
