Webinar - The Governors' role in Pay Decisions

This Better Governor webinar will focus on school teachers’ pay and the role that governing boards should play in making decisions relating to pay awards. Governing Boards have statutory duties relating to Teachers’ Pay and this webinar will take you through these responsibilities, explaining the difference between performance-related pay and decisions on annual pay awards linked to the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD). We will also explore how effective pay committees operate and what information governors should expect to receive to support their decision making. The session will be facilitated by two of our governance experts; Steve Barker and Linda Waghorn and will be a mix of input from them, live opinion polls and the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
