01 Dec 2014
Ms Diane Abbott MP

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will take steps to ensure that qualified teachers employed by private agencies to provide supply cover in schools have access to the Teachers' Pension Scheme.

Answered by: Mr David Laws MP on 04 December 2014

Supply teachers have access to the Teachers’ Pensions Scheme (TPS) where they have a contract of employment directly with the school or local authority in which they are working. Decisions about the precise employer/employee relationship are determined locally between the school and the agency.
