SNCT: Teachers' pay claim 2017-2018: formal agreement reached

On 18 December 2017, the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT) agreed a number of proposals in relation to pay and conditions of service for teachers and associated professionals.

  • Pay: a 1% uplift (backdated) from 1 April 2017 to 31 December 2017.  An additional 1% uplift in pay from 1 January 2018 to 31 March 2018 will also apply.  
  • Supply: from 1 January 2018, all supply teachers will be paid the appropriate point on the main grade scale, regardless of the duration of the cover.  
  • Pay and Reward Review: all sides agreed to take part in a strategic review of pay and reward of Scotland’s teachers and to explore clearly defined career progression pathways.

Voice Scotland’s Senior Professional Officer, Dougie Atkinson, said:

“Voice is disappointed with the revised offer, as it does not address the real terms fall in teachers’ pay over the past ten years.

“However, we are prepared to concede that it is the best offer that can be secured in the circumstances.”
