Voice is calling on the School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) to recommend an across the board increase of 5% for all teachers and school leaders in England.
In its written submission to the STRB, Voice also calls on the STRB to:
- recommend on the basis of evidence on the state of teacher supply rather than in response to instructions regarding affordability;
- review the teacher pay framework with a view to introducing national pay scales to ensure that the pay framework provides a clear career pathway, meets current challenges and provides an attractive offer for teachers at all career stages;
- seek to establish sustainable and appropriate pay levels in the long term; and
- work to ensure that teaching re-claims its place in today’s graduate job market.
