Starting salaries for teachers are set to rise to £26,000 this autumn, under Government plans. The Department for Education (DfE) is proposing the increase as part of its pledge to raise salaries for new recruits to £30,000 by 2022/23.
Under the Government's proposals, wages for new teachers in England, working outside London will rise by 6.7% this September, to £26,000 from the current minimum of £24,373.
Salaries for those in outer London would rise to £30,000, and £32,000 for those in inner London.
Experienced teachers and school leaders will get a pay rise of 2.5% this year, the DfE said.
The pay rises will be funded out of extra money due to be pumped into England's school system, it added.
Ministers have announced a three-year plan to increase school spending by £7.1 billion by 2022/23.
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ""We want to make teaching attractive to the most talented graduates by recognising the prestige that we as a society place on the profession.
"We have set out proposals to significantly raise starting salaries for new teachers to £26,000 next year, rising to £30,000 by September 2022, alongside above-inflation pay increases for senior teachers and school leaders.
"These mark the biggest reform to teacher pay in a generation."
