On Monday 9 July, the Staff Side met representatives of the Sixth Form Colleges Association, the colleges’ national body, to discuss sixth form college teachers’ pay from September 2018.

The Staff Side emphasised the need for higher pay for all teachers and the importance of the school teachers’ increase which was still awaited. The Employers’ Side made a pay offer of 1% on all scale points and allowances from 1 September 2018.

The Staff Side responded that this was very disappointing and rejected this offer. Following discussion, it was agreed that representatives of the two Sides should meet, before the negotiations resume, to consider the funding and finances of sixth form colleges.
