We’re seeking views on the Department for Education’s (DfE) proposal to support certain education institutions with the increase to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS) in 2019 to 2020.
DfE’s proposal is to fund:
- schools that receive public funding

The department would like to use this consultation to understand the impact on these institutions, and on other affected institutions, and welcomes responses from:
- TPS employers
- teachers and other staff
- sector bodies
