Teachers to boycott new appraisal system

Teachers
voted to boycott a new government appraisal system yesterday, which could
potentially give them £6,000 pay rises.

Delegates
at the National Union of Teachers’ Conference in Cardiff backed a motion
calling for a boycott of the performance-management system that will be used to
determine whether they qualify for a pay rise.

They
believe the new system pits teacher against teacher.

Under
the new system teachers will face an annual appraisal that could determine if
top teachers get a £2,000 pay rise. It would give them access to a new career
structure adding a further £4,000 to teachers’ salaries.
