Pay for teachers in Scotland is determined by the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT). The SNCT is a tripartite body, comprising members from teaching unions, the employers' side (local authorities), and the Scottish Government.
Teachers’ pay in Wales is now devolved to Wales, and is no longer determined by the UK Government. Wales has its own Independent Welsh Pay Review Body that makes recommendations on teachers’ pay and conditions to the Welsh Government. The Welsh Government then decides whether to implement those recommendations. The STPC(W)D 2019/20 is the first such document using this newly devolved power.
