The School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) is an independent body which makes recommendations to the Government on the pay and conditions of school teachers in England.
The STRB assesses evidence from Government and organisations representing schools and the teaching profession, and visits schools and local authorities to develop its understanding of issues facing teachers. In addition to providing recommendations on annual pay awards for teachers and school leaders, the STRB has been asked to report on a variety of matters in recent years, including moving toward a pay structure with higher starting and early career salaries and relatively flatter pay progression and providing additional guidance to schools through advisory pay points.
The STRB is now seeking to fill a vacancy, to:
- consider parties’ written evidence, views and proposals;
- take oral evidence from parties;
- assimilate information and data on pay, policy, economic, workforce and financial matters;
- weigh evidence and undertake independent analysis;
- formulate conclusions and make recommendations to the Government.
The STRB also meets with schools and local authorities to talk directly to teachers and school leaders and so develop its understanding of the issues they face.
- A strong track record of professional experience requiring specialist expertise in economics at a senior level.
- The ability to analyse and interpret a large amount of complex and sensitive information, clearly communicate economic analysis to a non-specialist audience and demonstrate a working knowledge of the impact of any potential decisions on the teacher workforce.
- An understanding of pay, remuneration and reward issues and an appreciation of the policy, financial and operational constraints that impact on remuneration decisions.
- An ability to communicate effectively in collective decision making, assessing/debating conflicting opinions across a wide range of perspectives and attitudes to form a coherent set of recommendations.
It is desirable if candidates also have:
- a detailed knowledge and understanding of labour market economics, and/or the economics of education.
