Teacher starting salaries could rise to £30,000

Starting salaries for teachers in England could rise by up to £6,000 under new government plans.

The Department for Education said the move would make new teachers’ salaries – set to rise to £30,000 by 2022-23 – “among the most competitive” in the graduate labour market.

Unions say the increase is long overdue, and necessary, to attract enough graduates into the profession.
