David Evans, NEU Cymru Secretary welcomed that the Education Minister and the Welsh Government have agreed to £47.7mto meet the full cost of the additional estimated pressure on schools and further education institutions arising out of changes to teachers’ pensions.

David Evans said:

"This is a welcome move by the Education Minister and Welsh Government. The pressures passed on by UK Government were causing unnecessary pressures on schools and colleges at a time when budgets are at crisis point."
