Following on from the review of allowances in the public service, revised salary scales for teachers were agreed and Circular 008/2013 was published on the 25th January setting out the new scales. My Department are currently adapting the payroll systems to take account of the new scales and to ensure that the correct rate of pay is applied to the relevant teachers.
