On Monday 4 December, 2017 the National Joint Council for Sixth Form Colleges Committee for Teaching Staff (Staff Side) met representatives of the Sixth Form Colleges Association (SFCA), the colleges’ national body, to resume discussions on the sixth form college teachers’ annual pay award from September 2017.
Working with 5 other unions across England and Wales, ATL has jointly produced advice on the application of the proposed changes to the STPCD, including the adoption of pay scales and the application of individual pay increases. This joint advice will be sent to all schools following the formal confirmation of the proposed changes and the publication of the 2017 School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD).
Along with ASCL, NAHT, NUT, UCAC and Voice, ATL has written to Justine Greening in response to Government proposals following the STRB's 27th Report on school teachers' pay.
The government has now published the School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) recommendations for teachers’ pay from September 2017.
