Sixth form colleges pay award 2022/23 (additional increase)

Please find attached details of an additional increase to the minimum rates of pay in sixth form colleges.

The 2022/23 support staff pay agreement was concluded taking account of the Low Pay Commission’s projection at the time of the statutory minimum wage rate of £10.32 per hour from 1 April 2023. The agreed recommendation and actual increase introduced by Government from 1 April 2023 is £10.42, which means the lowest point on the pay spine, pay point 3, is £20,025 with an hourly rate of £10.38, and therefore needs to be increased. The rate of the bottom point on the scale will increase to £20,173 from 1 March 2023.

In order to maintain pay differentials, an agreement has been reached to increase the pay of staff on the bottom four points of the scale even though they are above the National Living Wage.
