star this property answer text <p>The Government is delivering a pay rise of up to 3.5% for classroom teachers on the main pay range, 2% for those on the upper pay range and 1.5% for those in leadership positions. This is being supported by a Teachers Pay Grant of over £500 million covering the difference between the first 1% that schools would have been anticipating under the previous public sector pay cap and the 2018 award.</p><p>The Department has put in place a range of measures, including generous bursaries, worth up to £26,000 for priority subjects, to encourage trainees to take key subjects such as mathematics and physics. The Department is also testing new financial incentives for priority subject teachers. These include early-career payments for new maths teachers and a student loan reimbursement scheme for languages and science teachers.</p><p>The Department invests in a range of programmes to help teachers develop the knowledge and skills required to be successful in moving into school leadership positions. These include the recently strengthened National Professional Qualifications (NPQs), with over £10m made available to help schools in priority areas benefit from this high-quality professional development.</p><p>Earlier this year the Department announced the development of a new strategy to drive recruitment and boost retention of teachers. The strategy will cover a wide range of areas including professional development, workload, career progression, flexible working and entry routes into teaching.</p><p> </p>
