Any FE Governors here? watch

  • View Poll Results:

    Are there any further education college governors here? OK, members of
    College Corporations then!

    Have you any views on how the Teachers Pay Initiative is being
    implemented in your college?

    Never even heard of it or some sub-committee chaired by the Principal is
    dealing with that?

    The TPI was intended to address the ever worsening staff recruitment and
    retention problems within the sector. Instead it is having exactly the
    opposite effect. The scheme was launched on April 1st - yet 9 months
    later many colleges have still not given out any money to staff.

    To add insult to injury any money that will be given out will NOT be
    consolidated into annual salaries and so will NOT be pensionable.

    Still worse is that some of the money appears to be tied to staff
    agreeing to contractual changes relating to taking on an increased
    teaching load and/or accepting a reduction in annual leave.
