Considering consultation about withdrawal from the TPS?
I think it’s inevitable that the costs will continue to rise and you need to prepare for absorbing another leap in those costs. What’s the impact for the school? Well, it comes down to increases in fees or savings elsewhere in pay, staffing levels or resources and potentially reduced investment in your facilities; none of these are an easy challenge to face.
I guess many of the Heads are still protective of the benefit package on offer for teachers so will be wary, but when you take all these other risks into consideration it is a brave decision to not look at what this alternative may offer the school in the longer term.
There is life after withdrawal from the TPS and, if you offer a flexible package, I think you will be astounded at how the teaching staff adapt to considering how that flexibility can serve them for their current and retired lifestyles. Good luck !
