Issue details

Teachers pay award 2019/20

To seek comments on proposed arrangements for an increased pay award for teachers. The proposals aim to ensure that all teachers are treated equally and receive a cost of living increase. The national pay award only applies to the minima and maxima of each pay range and not for pay reference points in-between; therefore if the national pay award was applied, the majority of teachers would not receive a cost of living increase.
