    Not good news....

    Analysis by the Association of Colleges reveals this could cause schools’ and colleges’ employer contributions to rise from their current level of 16.48 per cent to 18 per cent in 2019.

    This would cost the average secondary school about £50,000 extra per year and the average primary school about £11,000 extra per year, the analysis finds


    Will lead to lower/no pay increases, or even pay cuts...

    Extra pension contributions for schools is effectively a funding cut.
    This on top of Education funding not being index linked ( a continuing cut annually in real terms).

    No headlines, George Osborne cuts Education funding again. Clever he is. Don't forget he had a grand Education. £30 000+++++pa.

    Probably having to be done to pay for all those early pensions (ARB) they are paying out.
