Why We Are Consulting

This consultation asks those who will be involved in offering and delivering the mathematics early-career payments to teachers for their views on how they will be administered. Although the proposed approach has sought to minimise the administrative burden on both schools and teachers, it still involves a role for both in claiming the payments. The consultation covers the following topics:

  • The eligibility criteria for the payments
  • The payment process
  • The proposed approach to income tax, National Insurance and pension contributions associated with the payments


  • Teachers
  • Headteachers
  • Training providers
  • Universities


  • Pay, conditions and pensions
  • Recruitment
