Rise and fall

23rd December 2005 at 00:00
Newly qualified teachers could lose up to pound;100 of their recommended pay rise if public sector wage increases remain below inflation. Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer, wants to keep pay rises close to his inflation target of 2 per cent. Last month, the School Teachers' Review Body recommended an increase of 2.7 per cent to teachers' salaries. For an NQT, the difference between 2 and 2.7 per cent would be pound;134 a year.

A teacher at the top of the main pay spine would lose pound;196.
