Teachers Pensions have just announced that they are to start running retirement courses for teachers, which are endorsed by the DfE, providing the most up-to-date information on the scheme for teachers thinking of retiring. Schools have previously had to pay quite high fees to send teachers on these type of courses. Teachers Pensions are to run these courses at schools free of charge, which is great new for struggling school budgets! Teachers Retirement Courses announcement We’ve been working hard over the past month to review our webinars and seminars, including reviewing feedback from you in order to improve our presentations. We’ll be letting you know by mid-July where we’re planning on visiting from September onwards so you have an idea of when we’ll be near you. In addition to this, and new for the 2019/20 academic year, we’ll be hosting member presentations. The member presentations will include information to help your employees understand the Scheme better, which we’re hoping will help reduce the amount of queries you receive from your staff. All we ask from you is that you can provide a minimum of 40 members that will want to attend a seminar at your establishment and we’ll provide the trainer. The members you invite don’t all have to be from your establishment, you’re welcome to team up with surrounding establishments which will also make for a great networking opportunity. Further information on member presentations will follow shortly.
