It’s not often that the Government asks for more money and then offers to pay anyway! That is the situation when it comes to employer contributions to the Teacher Pension Scheme (TPS) for most maintained schools and academies, as well as, it appears, music hubs.
In the latter months of 2018, the Government announced that employer contributions to the (TPS) would need to increase by 40%, from 16.48% to an estimated 23.6% of employee earnings. For 2019/2020, the Government proposes providing funding to help foot the £830m bill for such increases. However, as with many things political at the time of writing, there is still an element of uncertainty for the future.

Consultation closes on 12th February 2019.
