National crisis looming in teaching unions warn

A national crisis in teacher numbers is looming, six unions representing teachers and school leaders in England and Wales have warned.

Government limits to teacher pay and real terms cuts to school budgets risk undermining standards, they warn.

Teachers need a pay rise, they urge, in a joint statement to the School Teachers Review Body (STRB), which sets their pay.

The government said it was attracting the best and brightest to teaching.

 

Teachers pay increases have been limited to 1% or less for the past five years, and the government aims to keep to this limit for the next four years.

In October, Englands education secretary, Nicky Morgan, wrote to the STRB to remind them of this policy.
