School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (podcast)

This podcast features a focused discussion between Steve Barker and Ruth Murton, both experienced governors and governance experts, on the latest version of the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD).

 

The 2016 STPCD is statutory for maintained schools but is routinely used by academies and free schools to ensure that they are offering competitive salaries in a market increasingly characterised by recruitment and retention issues.


The discussion focusses on the key changes in the 2016 STPCD, how these should be implemented and the implications for governing bodies in both maintained schools and academies.


A key issue for governors to consider here is application of the 1% uplift, which is not intended to be a universal increase for all staff, but an uplift to the top and bottom of pay scales only.
