By October 7, 2021 Industry News

On 6 October 2021, the Department for Education announced that teachers in the early years of their careers will be eligible for a salary boost of up to £3,000 tax-free to teach maths, physics, chemistry and computing.

The Government has announced the salary boost to support recruitment and retention of teachers in these subjects and in the schools and areas that need them most.

The package will be available to eligible teachers in the first five years of their careers, and is backed by £60 million in funding.

As part of the announcement, the Government highlighted that, ‘International evidence indicates premiums that deliver a 10 per cent increase in pay could reduce leavers from among early career teachers in shortage subjects by 30 per cent.’
