On 26 October 2015 the SNCT agreed proposals in relation to pay and conditions of service for teacher and associated professionals.

Agreement has been reached on:

  • Pay – A 1.5% uplift from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016 shall apply. Thereafter, a 1% uplift in pay from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017 shall apply.
  • Supply – An evaluation and review of the impact of the recommendations of the Supply Teachers Working Group will be concluded by January 2016 with a view to addressing any ongoing issues in the delivery of supply teaching. 
  • Workload – A statement and principles for managing teacher workload has been agreed. 

Separate to the SNCT Pay and Conditions Agreement, the EIS secured commitment through the SNCT from the Scottish Government on maintaining teacher numbers for the duration of the agreement.
