Voice calls for 5% pay increase for teachers and school leaders

Voice's submission to the School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) January 2020

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.
