NEU Pay Progression Toolkit

Advice for NEU members and representatives on how the pay progression system works; on assessing and challenging school policies on pay progression; and on pursuing appeals against denial of pay progression.

Pay progression for all teachers depends on appraisal outcomes and criteria set by schools. Being aware of how the pay progression system works, and taking action to challenge pay policies collectively or appeal decisions individually, are essential to protect teachers’ pay.
