Employee Rewards and Benefits

Schools are only as good as the people who work in, lead and support them. Outstanding schools will also have a happy and motivated workforce who believe they have a long-term career.

That is why we, at United Learning, place great importance in ensuring that our rewards and benefits are not only clear and transparent but also highly competitive and fit your lifestyle. We are constantly monitoring the national landscape so that we are a leader rather than a follower in the education sector - for example, you can generally expect to earn more as a teacher at United Learning than you would in the maintained sector.

Core Benefits

We recognise that it is not just the pay but also what other benefits you receive by being part of United Learning. That is why in addition to your basic pay, we offer a package of core benefits which includes:

  • A contributory pension scheme, relevant to your role including access to Teacher and Local Government Schemes, and our Group pension scheme in partnership with Legal and General (available options subject to position);
  • Occupational sick pay;
  • Independent school fee reduction scheme for your children;
  • Tailored Continuous Professional Development (CPD) through the United Learning Institute;
  • BUPA Cover (senior appointments only).

Lifestyle Benefits

At United Learning, we respect you as an individual and your lifestyle. Therefore, we also offer as part of our core package:

  • Leading maternity, paternity and adoption benefits;
  • Flexible working arrangements;
  • Career and development opportunities nationally within the Group. 

Flexible Benefits

We also have a salary sacrifice scheme from which you can chose additional benefits to specifically suit your needs. A salary sacrifice scheme allows payment for a benefit or scheme to be deducted from your gross salary (before tax and national insurance is deducted) which will save you money on tax and national insurance. They include:

  • Childcare vouchers;
  • Cycle to work scheme;
  • Computer (including TV);
  • Mobile phone;
  • Dining card;
  • Gym membership;
  • Health screening;
  • Health cash plan;
  • Retail savings.

Future salary sacrifice benefits include:

  • Private Medical Insurance;
  • Personal Accident Scheme;
  • Car Lease Scheme.

Enhanced benefits package for eligible roles

Many of our schools are located in challenging areas of deprivation where teachers can make a huge difference to the life chances of young people. We recognise these are tough roles and have a package of additional benefits to support you. To find out more about these benefits, click here.
