The NUT pay toolkit is a set of advice documents for NUT members and NUT representatives intended to help teachers secure pay progression, by taking collective action to resist pay policies which would reduce rates of pay progression or by pursuing and winning appeals against decisions that individual teachers should not progress.
This year will be the first when pay progression for all teachers will depend on appraisal outcomes and criteria set by schools. Taking action to challenge pay policies collectively or appeal decisions individually will be essential to help protect teachers’ pay.
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 guidance document examines the pay, conditions of service and working time of supply teachers. It deals both with supply teachers employed directly by LAs or individual schools and with those employed via supply teaching agencies which set their own pay and conditions.
