Support in administering the Teachers’ Pension Scheme

To help you administer the Teachers’ Pension Scheme, we’ve compiled a HR Guide and Payroll Guide. Their purpose is to:-

  • support Local Authority HR units, external HR and payroll providers and employers within individual teaching establishments with an understanding of how the Teachers’ Pension Scheme will be administered
  • provide clarity of information and procedures for supporting your members on understanding the changes to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme from 1 April 2016

The documents have been developed with support from Unions, Employer Groups, teaching establishment representatives and payroll providers over a period of months. This was to help ensure they cover all the requirements and that the correct level and depth of information has been included.

We’re providing you with an opportunity to see the word versions
