Starting salaries to rise to £30,000

Obviously it’s only a ‘could’ and it’s just a fictional carrot to make all the teachers forget the cuts of the last few years and vote for BJ in the next election, but...

Why is it just starting salaries? What about the rest of the pay scale?

As far as I was aware, yes numbers are well down on teacher training programs, but the numbers of teachers quitting once in role is far more worrying??

I agree that the issue is further down the line with too many teachers leaving!

They will probably increase across the scales, but with some degree of compression. M1 to UPS3 is currently £23k to £40k. I think we will see this compressed to something like £30k to £43k.

So there are still more leaves on Boris's magic money tree.

A slightly less BBC take on the whole thing:

And it's all being funded from school budgets!

* I think we will see this compressed to something like £30k to £43k.*

So more people will perhaps train but nothing to particularly keep them from leaving.

What does it mean by pay progression points? Like M1, M2, M3?

I presume it means all of them : so the idea of progressing up the scale.

It does seem that the rest of us are getting nothing and that NQTs may be paid the same as people who have some years experience (I am so old, I no longer know where you would be on the scale at the moment if you were paid £30k)

If they push M1 up to 30k, they will have to move at least M2, M3 and M4. Or teachers will start getting pay cuts. What about UPS?!

So they mean reintroducing progression points that most places still use anyway?

Giving a bunch of money to schools then saying ‘you have to spend it all on your most inexperienced staff’ is a bit confused

It certainly needs some fleshing out.
