Teachers on Isle of Man to receive pay rise

Mon, 28 Nov 2022

Every teacher and lecturer in the Isle of Man will receive a pay rise next month of between 8% and 11.9% with the higher salaries coming into effect before Christmas.

It’s after four of the Island’s five recognised teaching and lecturing trade unions accepted the Government’s recent pay offer.

It means newly qualified teachers working in the Isle of Man will have a starting salary of £36,557.  In England, outside of London, the starting salary for teachers is £28,000.

The new pay scales should act as a significant incentive, attracting teachers to the Island while helping to retain those already working here.

The increase in teachers’ salaries, which varies depending on pay band, will be backdated to 1 September 2022, with arrears being paid as a lump sum in February 2023.

The National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) trade union has not accepted the pay offer, however its members will receive next month’s pay rise

Earlier this month the NASUWT announced six days of teaching strikes by its members.  This is an escalation of ongoing industrial action by the NASUWT which has seen its members withdraw their support for a number of activities including cover for school break times.

The first two days of strikes take place on Wednesday 30 November and Thursday 1 December.  Headteachers have written to parents advising what impact the strikes will have on their child’s school and setting out what action parents need to take.
