The Taylor Review of modern working practices

The Taylor Review, commissioned last autumn and published on 11th July 2017, has been considering the implications of modern employment practices on worker rights and responsibilities, as well as employer freedoms and obligations. This review was commissioned partly to address the impact of the rise in short-term casual work (‘gig’ work) which is often undertaken on an ostensibly self-employed basis. The government has committed to careful consideration of the contents with a view to formally responding later in the year but the Prime Minister has already openly stated an intention to take action to ensure that the interests of workers are properly protected.

Download our guidance which contains a summary of the key recommendations, focussing on those we think will be of most relevance to the education workforce if taken forward.

Further updates will be provided later in the year once the government has responded to the Review.

Teachers' pay award update

On 10th July 2017 the proposed teachers' pay award, accepted by the Secretary of State for Education subject to consultation, was published as part of the School Teachers' Review Body's latest report. The recommended award is for a 2% increase on the main pay range and a 1% increase on all other ranges and TLR/SEN allowances. As in recent years the increase only applies to the minima and maxima of the pay ranges and it is for schools to determine whether to apply the award to salaries in payment. Further guidance is available to download on our Teachers' Pay Ranges page.
