Teachers' and leaders' views on the pay framework: a review

In 2014/15 the Department for Education (DfE) implemented significant reforms to the pay framework for teachers, with the aim of introducing a more flexible performance- based structure.  

In May 2018 the DfE commissioned IES to collect views from teachers, headteachers and governors on the current pay framework and how the framework can best support a clear career pathway for classroom teachers and support recruitment and retention within the profession.

IES will conduct a mixed methods review of these issues which will include: a YouGov survey of teachers and headteachers, telephone interviews with teachers and headteachers, and webinars with governors.
