Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group
Nov 2018 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, State Pensions
The Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group, which was commissioned to review the possible health and deployment implications of teachers working longer as a result of the increase in normal pension age (NPA) in the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) and the link between the NPA and state pension age (SPA), has published its final report. The report focuses on the Group's findings in relation to the impact of working longer in terms of teachers' physical and mental well-being, and employment practices which could support teachers working longer. Amongst its conclusions, the Group recommends that steps be taken to educate and raise knowledge about the TPS, its flexibilities and its ill-health provisions. The Group acknowledges that further evidence still needs to be gathered about the appropriateness of the continued link between the SPA and NPA, as this is not an issue dealt with in detail by the report.
