National Pay

NEU members’ strike action forced the Government to improve its 2023-24 pay offer increasing it to 6.5 per cent, and commit an extra £900 million to properly fund the teacher pay offer and protect support staff jobs. In July, NEU members voted overwhelmingly to accept the offer.

Over the coming year, the NEU will continue to campaign for a properly funded correction in teacher pay to reverse the real-terms cuts imposed since 2010 and for further improvements in education funding.

This work starts with our current focus on pay implementation. We need to ensure, with your help, that the national pay award is implemented in full at every school so that every teacher receives their cost-of-living rise and all eligible teachers receive pay progression.
