Advice on pay scales, pay progression and how to secure fair pay in your workplace.

National Education Union members have worked successfully in many schools and academies to secure school pay policies which protect teachers and education professionals. Even if your school has adopted pay scales or a pay policy which doesn’t comply with National Education Union pay policy, it is not too late to try and change them.

The National Education Union wants pay decisions to be based only on the appraisal process, with teachers progressing unless concerns raised during the process have not been successfully addressed through support provided. Now that all pay progression - and even the annual cost of living increase - depends on appraisal outcomes and criteria set by schools, there is no sense not challenging an unacceptable policy. 

We will continue to challenge the Government to reverse its attacks on the national pay structure. Use the information in our pay toolkit to find out about pay progression and challenging pay decisions and read the joint union advice on school teachers' pay 2017-18.

You can use the NUT section pay loss calculator to see how much you are earning this year and how much more you would have been earning if the Government had been willing to increase your pay in line with inflation
