Early-career teachers will be eligible for a pay raise of up to £ 3,000 tax-free for teaching math, physics, chemistry and computer science.

The aim is to support the recruitment and retention of teachers specializing in these subjects and in the schools and fields that need them most.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the package. It will be available to eligible teachers during the first five years of their careers and is backed by a funding commitment of £ 60million.

“To level up, in addition to the increase which means each teacher starts with a salary of £ 30,000, today we are announcing an upgrade bonus of up to £ 3,000 to send math teachers and science where it needs it most, “Johnson said at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester.

International data indicates that bonuses offering a 10 percent salary increase could reduce departures among early-career teachers in shortage subjects by 30 percent.
