star this property answer text <p>Academies, including free schools, university technical colleges and studio schools, have the freedom to set their own pay and conditions policies, and so are free to offer their teachers access to car purchase salary sacrifice schemes. Currently 15% of all primary schools and 62% of all secondary schools are academies.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In local authority maintained schools, changes to the statutory pay and conditions of teachers must first be referred to the independent School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB). Recent STRB referrals have focused on fundamental reforms to the overall pay and conditions framework for teachers. Following the STRB’s recommendations, these reforms have given schools much greater freedom to attract and retain the best teachers and to reward individuals in line with their contribution to improving their pupils’ achievements.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The demands on the STRB’s time and resources in the reform process mean that the Government has had to make hard decisions on the issues it refers to STRB. In light of the focus of the important referrals above, we have not prioritised revisions to the existing salary sacrifice arrangements. However, the Government will consider whether the issue should be included in future referrals to the STRB.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government provides bursaries in order to incentivise application to initial teacher training (ITT) courses from the best graduates. As such, bursary rates are set based on recruitment performance over recent years by phase and subject. Generally, higher bursaries are provided where a phase or subject has struggled to attract sufficient applicants in recent years. We review the financial incentives for ITT each year in order to respond to recruitment patterns across these phases, subjects and routes. Therefore, we have no current plans to extend bursary eligibility, but we will review this again before announcing bursaries for those starting ITT in 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The bursaries for those starting ITT in 2015/16 are published online at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/funding-initial-teacher-training-itt-academic-year-2015-to-16" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/funding-initial-teacher-training-itt-academic-year-2015-to-16</a></p> more like this
