Common Basic Scale post 1/1/11

Revised salary scale for teachers who entered the profession since 1/1/11. 

This includes the full value of the Honours Primary Degree Allowance and a 1.75% increase to all points effective from 1/9/19.

*Effective from 1st March 2019, scale points 4 and 8 have been removed from post-1st January 2011 ‘new entrant’ scales. The measure means that new and recent entrants will ‘jump’ these points and progress up the scale quicker. The implications of the measure vary, depending on career stage of a member. Circular 22/2019 outlines the measure. Click here for a document prepared by TUI Head Office with more detail on the financial implications for those members who will benefit.
