Williamson: Teacher pay will be ‘levelled up’

Teacher salaries will be “levelled up” to coincide with a rise of £6,000 in starting salaries for new teachers, education secretary Gavin Williamson has revealed. Tes reports.

In an exclusive interview with Tes, Mr Williamson was asked whether this could lead to scenarios whereby a new teacher in their first year could be on more than a colleague who had been in the job for two or three years.

But he said the salaries of classroom teachers further up the scale would also rise alongside that of NQTs in increments, which the School Teachers’ Review Body would be asked to decide upon.
